Clipping the Church by Tereza Bušková

This summer, Czech artist Tereza Bušková will adorn a Birmingham church with ornate baked bread and encircle it with a living garland of 100 people. Help to make it happen, become part of the artwork and join other participants in Clipping the Church!

Places are free but booking is advisable by emailing clippingthechurch@gmail.com.

The re-interpretation of this old English tradition will take place at St Barnabas Church, situated right at the heart of Erdington High Street. The day will include a procession along the high street, costumed actors, live music, food and drink, and traditional Czech pastries!
