Museums and galleries across the UK are subject to temporary closures. Those that remain open have safety measures in place, please remember to check venue guidelines before visiting.

This talk will highlight the stories of several Victorian stained glass windows in the Stained Glass Museum, many of which were rescued from redundant churches.

We will focus on these windows' original ecclesiastical contexts, how they came to be removed and rescued by the museum.

For those unfamiliar with the museum's collection, this is a great introduction to our unique national collection of stained glass and the history of the museum. For those already familiar with the museum, we hope that we will uncover their histories, contexts and significance in more depth than before.

The talk will be delivered by the museum's Director and Collections Engagement Officer as the final talk in our Spring 2021 series.
