Illuminated manuscripts at Canterbury – Talk and Afternoon Tea

Illuminated manuscripts at Canterbury – Talk and Afternoon Tea

Cressida Williams, Head of Canterbury Cathedral Archives and Library, will give a fascinating talk about the finely decorated (‘illuminated’) manuscripts in the Cathedral’s collections, focussing on medieval items, but including a few more modern examples. Discussing the production of the manuscripts and the history of their curation, Cressida will also touch on manuscripts produced in Canterbury but now in collections elsewhere.’ A very interesting talk, followed by a Full Afternoon Tea in the Claggett Auditorium.

Afternoon Tea consists of a selection of teas and coffee, afternoon tea sandwiches to include egg and cress (v), smoked salmon, Cheddar cheese and pickle (v), ham and grain mustard; scones with clotted cream and strawberry preserve (v) followed by Rich fruit cake and Lemon Cake.

Arrival at 14.45 for talk, followed by afternoon tea

All guests are welcome to stay and enjoy Evensong in the Cathedral at 17.30.
