About our events diary: We have talks throughout the year, supplemented by visits in summer and a special Christmas event each winter. Many of our visits are to buildings not otherwise open to the public. Note that the default Diary only shows future events – for previous events follow the links lower down the page.  If few or no events are listed below it will be because we are finalising the new season’s programme (see notes above).

Medieval Gloucester – St Mary de Crypt and Llanthony Priory

Thursday, July 25th @ 11:00 am - 4:30 pm

A visit to St Mary de Crypt Church and to Llanthony Secunda Priory:

Many medieval buildings in Gloucester have been given a new lease of life, as a result of an ambitious and far-sighted programme “Achieving Regeneration in the City through Heritage.” A partnership of the City Council and many other groups including Gloucester Civic Trust have carried this forward. The projects have been generously funded by National Lottery Heritage Fund and the Arts Council and other bodies.  Full details are here:  https://us10.campaign-archive.com/?e=&u=5788ebe6ae697ef1409e23f56&id=94d9bb90e2

St Mary de Crypt
We will have a guided tour of this historic church. It has now been transformed into a vibrant community centre and the historic features have been enhanced.

Llanthony Secunda Priory
In the afternoon we will visit the medieval Priory. We will start with an illustrated talk in the magnificent tithe barn, followed by a guided tour of the restored buildings and gardens. Our visit ends with tea and cake.
