All Things Bright: A thousand years of metalwork from cathedral and diocese

Hereford Cathedral is full of treasures, examples of the very best in art, craft and architecture, created over the centuries as offerings to God.

The latest exhibition in the Mappa Mundi & Chained Library highlights a wide variety of metal objects, some fundamental to the act of Christian worship, others tucked away and perhaps overlooked. As well as its own metalwork treasures, the cathedral also cares for the historical silver no longer in regular use in churches in the Hereford Diocese. This exhibition shows some of the finest pieces from these collections.

‘All things bright’ is on show within Mappa Mundi and Chained Library, Hereford Cathedral, Monday 24 January to Saturday 23 April 2022. The exhibition is open from Monday to Saturday, 10am to 5pm (last entrance 4.30pm). Normal admission charges apply.
