The Very Reverend Andrew Nunn, Dean of Southwark and Chair of The Southwark Cathedral Development Trust is hosting a champagne* reception and talk entitled “From my beloved Albert” The personal jewellery of Queen Victoria by the British jewellery specialist, Geoffrey Munn OBE FSA, of the BBC’s Antiques Roadshow.

Tickets cost £25 per person and all proceeds will go towards the Cathedral’s All Hallows project.

The evening on 7th November will start at 6.30pm and is followed by a reception supported by the English Wine Pantry who will be providing *an internationally award winning English Sparkling wine made using the Champagne grape varietals.

The talk will take place in the Garry Weston Library at Southwark Cathedral and is a ticketed event. Tickets can be obtained from the Cathedral Shop or online at:

The All Hallows project is within the Cathedral parish where there are the remains of a bombed-out church. The one aisle that remained after the War was a functioning church until 1970.

The building then became a recording studio until 1990 (it was where Alison Moyet and Depeche Mode amongst others cut their disks). Since then the church has stood unused, though the garden around it has been maintained by the local community.

The All Hallows project aims to turn it into a vibrant community space for use by the local residents.
