Sir Diarmaid MacCulloch Kt FBA FSA FRHistS, Professor of the History of the Church at Oxford University will be the Guest Lecturer at a Dinner on July 24th.
The Lewis Chapel Project at the Priory is well underway in the first phase which involves the installation of a Jesse Window to accompany the famous carved Jesse figure in the Chapel. The next phase is to repair and refurbish the whole Chapel, containing his tomb, with fitting recognition for Dr David Lewis, a figure of considerable importance in the later Tudor period who was, inter alia, the first Principal of Jesus College, Oxford University.
It is appropriate that the evening is being held at the Llansantffraed Country House Hotel with the house’s close links to the Herbert Family , and their association to St Mary’s Priory.
The menu for the evening is being planned by Michael Morgan, the owner of the Hotel who will be using some local produce from his newly restored walled garden at the Hotel. If there are special dietary requirements, the Hotel will make the necessary arrangements. Tickets are priced at £65 per person and include pre-dinner canapés and Pimms, three courses and wine.
Dress will be black tie with the option to wear a light jacket.
The timetable for the evening is:-
5.45pm. Optional tour of walled gardens and visit the House Chapel.
6.30pm. Canapes and Pimms
7pm. Our Guest Speaker
