The tour will begin at the Bar Convent, where Sister Agatha will discuss the remarkable life of the order’s founder, the Venerable Mary Ward. In Micklegate the group will hear about the many notable people connected with the area and look at some of the buildings associated with the York Virtuosi, including the glass painter Henry Gyles (?1640-1709). Inside Holy Trinity Church the group will see monuments to other famous citizens and hear about their role in York’s past.

This event has been organised by the York & East Yorkshire Volunteer Fundraising Committee to help raise money for the Art Fund.
