The major event in our Friends' programme for the second half of 2019 is Illuminatio on Saturday September 28th. This is an exclusive premiere for Friends and their guests to view the dramatic illumination of the nave wall paintings, and hear from Professor Michael about his new book St Albans Cathedral Wall Paintings.
We also have a trip to the Spencer family home at Althorp planned in July, and a talk by a distinguished crossword setter in November!
All booking for Friends’ events is now via the Cathedral Box Office. It is possible for members of the Friends to access this in three ways:
Enjoy a trip to Althorp to see the gardens and the house, only open to the public for a limited number of days each year.
An exclusive opportunity to be the first to see our unique cathedral nave wall paintings as pilgrims in the Middle Ages may have known them.
An evening with Tim Moorey, a professional crossword setter, who sets puzzles for The Times, The Sunday Times, The Week, and The Sunday Telegraph. Tim will provide tips on how to improve your crossword technique.
