The Cathedral has a wonderful variety of embroideries. Among the earlier pieces is Spanish work believed to have been used at the marriage of Queen Mary to Philip II in 1554. In the collection of vestments is a set designed by Ninian Comper over a century ago while groups of kneelers tell the history of the Cathedral.
This event has been organised by a local supporter group to help raise money for the Art Fund.
