Crinoline skirts and fancy waistcoats will be in evidence when ladies and gentlemen of the congregation assemble at the beautifully restored Salem Chapel in East Budleigh for its fifth Victorian Christmas service this year.
"We don't insist on men wearing top hats, and we're certainly not offering any prizes for the best outfit," says Kathy Moyle, Chairman of the Friends of Salem Chapel. "But the service has become quite a popular event and we do our best to decorate the Chapel as it might have appeared in Victorian times, so if people want to come along in period costume they'll be most welcome."
Mulled wine and mince pies will be on offer, with an optional collection being made for the Chapel.
The chapel is available for hire. For further information please contact Kathy Moyle on 01395 445236.
'A Step back in Time' takes place on Sunday 19 December at 4.00 pm.
