Book a Fascinating Talk from an Expert Cathedral Guide at Your Chosen Venue.

If you are looking for a talk for your group or organisation, our team of expert Cathedral Guides can present a fascinating talk called 'St Albans Abbey - the First 1000 Years', that can be booked for your own venue.

This talk covers the history and architecture of St Albans Cathedral, both inside and outside. The presentation takes approximately one hour and can easily be divided into two sections. Content can be tailored to suit your audience’s specific interests or timetable.

Other presentations can be made available on more specific subjects such as the Cathedral's medieval wall paintings, Romanesque architecture and the life and work of the 13th century monk Matthew Paris . If you have a particular request, we shall try to deliver what you want. The specialist topics are specific to particular guides so we regret we cannot guarantee to meet fixed dates.

The presenter will attend with a computer and projector but it is helpful if the hosts can supply either a screen or a blank white wall.

A donation of £60 to Cathedral funds is requested and a contribution to the presenter’s travelling expenses if the site is away from St Albans.
