The title of Master of the Library is currently held by Revd Canon James Pacey, the cathedral’s Chancellor. On Wednesday 11 September he will be performing To further the good of the Library, a one man show giving an opportunity to hear directly from two of the prominent figures in the history of the Chained Library: Rev Dr Thomas Thornton, and Canon B H Streeter, who recreated the original library layout in the 20th century. 

This one-night event will bring alive the history of the Chained Library – a fitting finale to the summer’s exhibition ‘Master of the Library’.

The performance will take place on Wednesday 11 September at 7pm in the Chained Library. Tickets, which cost £15, are available to purchase below.

Please note that spaces are limited for this special event so advance booking is essential.
