Bible Talk Lecture Series: spring 2020

In the Cloister Room | 1.10pm until 2.00pm

There is no charge for attending the Bible Talks, although donations towards the work of Education in the cathedral are encouraged.

The spring series of Bible talks will focus on Frank S M Bennett, Dean of Chester 1920 – 1937 and the Cloister Windows.

This series of talks marks the 100th anniversary of the Installation of Frank S M Bennett as Dean of Chester in 1920.  The Cathedral Library exhibition for 2020 is all about his work and his many contributions to national and local debates.  Visits will be possible after most of the talks.

Please note: As a precaution during the current Covid-19 outbreak, the spring season of Bible Talks outlined below, have been postponed. For updates during this time, and to be updated when the Cathedral re-opens, sign up for our E-Newsletter here.
