Friends Study Day: Sacred Space and Common Ground

Friday 1 September, 10am-4pm

This is a second chance to join Cathedral Guide Richard Auckland on his highly successful and informative study day on the precincts of Gloucester Cathedral.  The day begins with coffee and an illustrated talk on the evolution of the grounds of the original St Peter’s Abbey to the area we are so familiar with today.  After lunch Richard will take us on a walk around the Cathedral precincts to talk about some of these buildings and their fascinating histories.  The day will conclude with tea and cakes in the Parliament Rooms.

NB: Please advise us using the 'special requests' option if you have particular dietary requirements.

This event is exclusively for members of the Friends of Gloucester Cathedral and their guests.

    The Cathedral is located in Gloucester Town Centre, so the best way to get here is by public transport.
