Treasure for Treasure

Saturday 10 June | 11.00 – 16.00

Your treasure will celebrate love in sacrifice.

Treasure for Treasure invites people to give up pieces of jewellery that haven’t been worn for years. The jewellery will be used to help fund the beautiful Icon of Christ Crucified, which will be written at the Cathedral, by students of the Bethlehem Icon School in the summer of 2018. Find out more about the Icon Project.

We are now accepting Treasure ahead of the event! Please contact Kate Durrant on kate.durrant@lichfield-cathedral.org to donate. For more information on Treasure for Treasure please contact The Chapter Office on 01543 306100.

Katherine Swynford: A Monologue by Lesley Smith

Saturday 10 June | 19.30

The love story of Katherine Swynford and John of Gaunt, the son of King Edward III, in and around the mid to late 14th century is one of the most powerful and enduring in English history. Join us for a glass of champagne and this romantic tale of knights in shining armour, performed by Lesley Smith, Curator of Tutbury Castle. This will also be the last chance to view a little-known painting of the Cathedral by J. M. W. Turner – a real treasure!
