ZoŽ joins Alan Rickman, Joanna Lumley, Bill Nighy and more for special church audio guide

23 July 2014 16:36

ZoŽ and a host of other well-known actors, including Alan Rickman, Joanna Lumley, Bill Nighy, Mark Rylance, Tim Piggott-Smith and Celia Imrie, have recorded a special audio guide to St Mary's Church in Fairford, Gloucestershire, which features the most complete set of late medieval stained glass windows in England.

As Broadway World reports, Zoe and her fellow contributors gave their time and voice talents free-of-charge to the guide. It was written by director and producer Nicolas Kent, Geoff Hawkes, who is Chairman of the Fairford History Society, and the late Denys Hodson, the former Vice-Chairman of the Arts Council, who helped to raise more than £1 million to restore the stained glass windows.

For visitor information, please see St Mary's Church's website.
