Wednesday, 9th May, 6.30pm for 6.45pm
Ely Cathedral, South Transept
For this year’s annual lecture, Jasmine Allen, Curator of the Stained Glass Museum, will take her audience back in time to explore the fascinating, and often surprising, displays of stained glass at International Exhibitions over the course of the 19th century. Drawing from glass exhibited at sites such as London’s Crystal Palace and along the Champs-Élysée in Paris, the lecture will both explore a range of stained glass windows which impressed visitors from across the world, and also, in turn, suggest how the challenges of exhibiting stained glass at these events ultimately shaped the ways in which modern museums have displayed stained glass.
The lecture is open to all. Tickets cost £7.50 (£6.00 to Friends of the Stained Glass Museum and of Ely Cathedral), and can be purchased through the Museum’s website.
