CELEBRATING ST ANDREW'S DAY
 MUSIC & MEMORIES: Thursday 30 November
12 noon until 6.30pm
To celebrate St Andrew's Day, St Andrew’s Cathedral is curating another special collection of items from its archives including original architectural sketches, the plans for the tapestries of Bishop Broughton’s chair and other intricate needlepoint items, guest books signed by visiting Royalty and historic service sheets – some dating back to the late 1800s. It even includes musical scores that help tell the story of the Cathedral's choristers - such as the red leather-bound copy of Handel's Messiah, presented as a chorister attendance prize in 1898!
