Weston's chance to rewrite the bible
PUBLISHED: 19:00 18 October 2011
PEOPLE in Weston can help rewrite the most famous book in history later this month - the Bible.
A new handwritten version of the King James Bible known as the People’s Bible is being made to celebrate the edition’s 400th anniversary.
People from across the UK will have been rewriting the book by hand as part of the celebrations.
People writing verses will write with a digital pen onto a tablet which will then record the writing exactly and store it on a website.
Each person will also be able to personalise their verses with a signature and contact details in order to leave their mark in the famous book.
The event will come into Weston on October 24 from 10.30am to 3pm at Big Lamp Corner, Regent Street, or in a Winter Gardens gazebo in the town centre if it is raining.
The project was kicked off at Edinburgh Castle in June when Prince Charles wrote the first two verses of Genesis.
It will end at Westminster Abbey on 16th November 2011.
