‘Remembering World War I: talk, tour and afternoon tea’ on Friday 2nd November

An afternoon at Canterbury Cathedral, with a guided tour by the Cathedral’s Artist in Residence, Dawn Cole, of her exhibition in the Chapter House entitled ‘Remember Me?!’. This exhibition marks the centenary of the end of World War I, and takes its inspiration from the Cathedral collections. Dawn will explain how she researched the Archive collection to develop the works on display. You will also be able to visit the Archives and view the material used by Dawn, as well as further items relating to the War. Dawn is an award winning printmaker working from her studio in Birchington, Kent. She exhibits internationally and has works in both private and public collections.

The tour and talk is followed by a full afternoon tea in the Lodge, featuring chocolate cake baked from a recipe from the time of the War in Dawn’s own collection.

Guests are welcome to attend Evensong at 5.30pm.

Price £21.95 per person (10% discount for Friends of Canterbury Cathedral).

We have two tours running on this afternoon. Arrival for tour, then afternoon tea at 2.30pm or arrival for afternoon tea, then tour at 2.45pm.
