Once again, we are honoured to host Cathedral sacristan, Mr Chris Backhouse, for a speaker event, on 16th August 2018. Chris will be able to use the event to show off some more of the Cathedral’s numerous treasures. Everyone who heard Chris speak last year was enthralled by what he had to show us, and greatly enjoyed the stories from his many years’ service to the Cathedral. Members of the Friends and anyone else who shares a love for the Cathedral will find the prospect of this talk most appealing.
The talk will be held at 6.30pm (after Vespers and Mass) on Thursday 16th August 2018 in the Sacristy, accessible from within the Cathedral: enter from the aisle beyond the Chapel of the Irish Saints. We are extremely grateful to Chris for inviting us into the Sacristy, which is not open to the general public. The talk will last about 45 minutes, with opportunity for questions afterwards, followed by wine and cheese. Tickets are $10 for members ($15 for non-members).
Special reduced-price tickets are available for Members who buy online: if you are a member and cannot see the Members’ price of $10 each, then you will need to log in. If you do not have a password, please send an email to email@example.com, and we will happily send you one. Space in the Sacristy is limited, so please book in advance if you can; some tickets might be available on the evening.
