Goldsmith’s Hall Stage Major New Exhibition

Historic and rare English Church silver dating from 800 to the present day is the subject of a major exhibition at Goldsmiths’ Hall in the summer of 2008.

Held under the patronage of the Archbishop of Canterbury the exhibition ‘Treasures of the English Church: Sacred Gold and Silver 800 – 2000’ features more than 330 spectacular objects from some of the country’s grandest cathedrals and from parish churches throughout England.

The exhibition opens to the public on Friday May 30 until Saturday July 12 and admission is free.

This is the first exhibition of such importance and scale ever to take place.

It will be displayed over two floors at Goldsmiths’ Hall, which will assume an appropriately ecclesiastical atmosphere for the occasion to complement the gravitas of the subject matter. Each piece vividly evokes the tradition, symbolism, and unbroken ritual of the Church of England through the ages.
