Taking place between Thursday, 25th and Sunday, 28th April, the weekend will be based in Bradford and will explore the wide range of stained glass, both medieval and more modern, to be found across the boroughs of Bradford, Dewsbury, Halifax, Huddersfield and Leeds.
Anticipated highlights include the 15th-century windows at Thornhill parish church; the collected medieval glass at Normanton; the spectacular collection of Swiss panels now at Wragby; Leeds and Halifax Minsters; and the beautiful Burne-Jones, Rossetti and Ford Maddox Brown glazing at Bradford Cathedral.
The weekend is co-organised by Jasmine Allen, Curator of the Stained Glass Museum, and Chris Parkinson, co-author of the forthcoming CVMA volume on Essex. They will be joined by Brian Sprakes, author of The Medieval Stained Glass in South Yorkshire, who is currently working on the CVMA volume for West Yorkshire.
