“NARNIA … where horses sometimes grow wings and Talking Beasts are called to life … a new world full of magic, where the adventures begin.”

The new carvings at St Mary’s are being made with kind permission from The CS Lewis Company Ltd, to whom we are extremely grateful for enabling something so special to take place in Beverley. Here are links to the official website and Facebook page of The Chronicles of Narnia by CS Lewis where a wealth of materials and information about Narnia can be found and where you can buy the books.

A sound world

Our first Narnia inspiration on this page is Aslan’s Theme from Geoffrey Burgon’s evocative score for the BBC television series which can be heard on Spotify here:
