Looking ahead into the New Year, the Museum has also announced details of its 2019 Study Weekend.

Study Weekend 2019: West Yorkshire
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.

For further details, including pricing and accommodation, see the Museum’s website.

NB. The Stained Glass Museum and gift shop will be closed to the public between Monday, 15th October and Thursday, 8th November to allow for the safe removal of scaffolding following the recent South Nave Aisle roof repairs.
