The Royal School of Needlework, based at the historic Hampton Court Palace, will bring pieces from their collection of ecclesiastical embroideries from 1st – 26th August 2019. The exhibition will feature works that showcase a variety of techniques, including silk shading and metal thread embroidery. In addition to works from the Royal School of Needlework there will be a number of pieces from the Cathedral’s own collection of vestments and frontals, providing members of the public a rare opportunity to see these beautiful vestments outside of the Cathedral’s services.

The exhibition will be open during the Cathedral’s regular opening hours (09:00am – 17:00pm) and will be included in the standard entry charge.
