A new exhibition about the little known ‘Tent Methodists’ has just opened at the Heritage Centre.
This group was a breakaway group from the Wesleyan Methodists and centred on Bristol but George Pocock came up with an idea of a large tent which could be taken around to local towns which didn’t have a suitable chapel. This allowed preaching to often very large crowds to take place.
We also have an ongoing exhibition about the men from Dursley who died in WW1 100 years ago. The exhibition will run until January 2017.
