A very short history of England's cathedrals
We are delighted that Nicholas Orme, Emeritus Professor of History at Exeter University, will be coming to take us on a quick journey through time. From very early in the history of our great cathedrals to the present day, he will give us insights into the construction, art and history of these magnificent buildings.
After the talk, there will be an opportunity to talk to Nicholas over wine, soft drinks and canapes. His books will also be on sale. Download the poster here.
Tickets (free to members of the Friends, £5 for guests) are available from Susie Hancock

Choral workshop with Ashley Grote
Ashley, known to many Friends as a former Director of the Music Festival and now Master of Music at Norwich Cathedral, will lead the fourth Edington Arts Choral Workshop.
One of the great choral masterpieces of the European tradition, the Brahms Requiem has been chosen in recognition of the anniversary of the end of the Great War in 1918. The work is sacred, but non-liturgical.
Soloists Eloise Irving (soprano) and Alex Jones (baritone) have been closely associated with the Edington Music Festival for many years. Libby Burgess and Richard Pinel will accompany the work, playing Brahms’ own four-handed piano arrangement for the afternoon sessions.
The final flourish will be a concert run-through to which the audience will be invited to buy reasonably priced tickets.

Chopin for a Summer’s Evening
Pianist Angela Brownridge was a child prodigy, equally talented in composition and extemporisation, and also technically brilliant.
She first performed in public in 1951 at the age of seven, and by fourteen she was appearing on the concert platform regularly as a concerto soloist and recitalist in the United Kingdom and abroad.
Tonight's Edington Arts programme will be based on the highly acclaimed recent release of her Chopin CD.
