church stained glass window and stone repairs

Saint Stephen on the Cliffs Blackpool. Home of the famous Actors Chapel


St Stephen's connection with Blackpool's entertainment world was strengthened when actors and artsites subscribed
to create the Actors' Chapel in 1928. The chapel features a reredos with a
double procession of carved singers, dancers and musicians above the marble
altar. The side panels bear the names of theatrical benefactors, and many
famous names can be seen, such as Noel Coward, George Formby, Arthur Askey and
Ivor Novello. The additional panel, which bears the names of donors who were
members of the theatrical profession, was unveiled by Gracie Fields in May 1929.
