On 27 November, the Stained Glass Museum celebrated the upcoming 40th anniversary of its opening to the public with a visit from His Royal Highness the Prince of Wales. The Prince became patron of the museum during its 25th anniversary appeal, and in this, his second, visit to the museum he enjoyed seeing how the museum’s collection has grown and developed since his last visit in 2000. He went on to join over 200 guests at a reception in the Lady Chapel at Ely Cathedral, in the north triforium of which the mu-seum is housed. At the reception, the Prince cut the museum’s 40th birthday cake and unveiled a plaque commemorating the visit.
