For a limited time, discover how our High Altar screen would have looked in the medieval period - with a 21st century twist. Cutting edge technology will bring to life our 15th century screen and 19th century statues with a milimetre accurate 3D scan and recolourisation based on historic research of what medieval high altars would have looked like. St Albans Cathedral is committed to social justice, so we are excited to bring the statues to life in a racially diverse way, reflecting where each of the saints depicted came from.

Please note that booking has temporarily been suspended for this event. There was an error in the delivery of the equipment which works the technology, and we are still waiting for one critical part to arrive. This part is crucial to the display itself, which many of you will be eager to see. Once we are able to bring to life our fifteenth-century screen and its nineteenth-century statues in full, we will be able to set a new date and time. 

We apologise again for the inconvenience caused.

Date TBC | Ornatissimam et Sumptuosissimam: Reimagining the Wallingford High Altar Screen

Join Dr James Alexander Cameron after Evensong to discover how this project came to life. This talk will look at the wider context of image screens in late medieval churches, especially the extremely similar predecessor at Winchester Cathedral, that informed an imaginative reconstruction of the Wallingford screen’s possible original appearance.

Tickets £10 (students £6), available below. This talk will take place in the Presbytery.
