Show Description

Gloucester Cathedral
November 2018

Thursday 1st November 2018 The Saints of Wales Exhibition The Saints of Wales
Monday 22 October to Saturday 3 November

In the Cloisters

The Saints of Wales exhibition is a set of 6–10 displays about medieval saints including links between the twelfth-century Lives and monasteries of the saints of south Wales with Gloucester Abbey. These freestanding displays create an illustrated narrative about the medieval Welsh and Latin sources for Welsh and trans-national saints and the enduring devotion to saints today.

The exhibition has been warmly welcomed in several cathedrals and churches in Wales, where, in most cases, two or three panels were made to address each individual site. At least one of these will be written to contribute to the 2018 Peace and Reconciliation theme.
 GCHQ “Poppyfall” Exhibition GCHQ “Poppyfall”

The “poppyfall” was created by GCHQ staff and friends to launch the Royal British Legion’s Gloucestershire 2016 Poppy Appeal. It was originally on display at the intelligence agency’s Cheltenham HQ and is a testament to their continued support for the military and the Legion. GCHQ was originally formed to support the military and it is still an important part of their mission as they head towards their Centenary in 2019.

GCHQ’s giant waterfall of handmade poppies will be on display in the Lady Chapel as part of the WW1 Commemoration.

The “poppyfall” was created by GCHQ staff and friends to launch the Royal British Legion’s Gloucestershire 2016 Poppy Appeal. It was originally on display at the intelligence agency’s Cheltenham HQ and is a testament to their continued support for the military and the Legion. GCHQ was originally formed to support the military and it is still an important part of their mission as they head towards their Centenary in 2019.

Admission is free and fully accessible.
