Exhibition of Recusant Chapel and Vestments of All Saints Wardour Castle

The NLM was informed of a rather interesting exhibition which will be taking place in England on Saturday, June 19th, The Wardour Chapel Exhibition -- apparently one of the great recusant houses in England.

This will be an opportunity to both see the chapel itself, located within All Saints Wardour Castle and opened in 1776, and will also include the exhibition of chasubles and copes dating from the 15th to 19th centuries inclusive -- including the 15th century Westminster Chasuble which belonged to Margaret of York, sister of King Edward IV. Moreover, it will also include the exhibition of church plate and an opportunity to view and listen to the chapel's 18th century organ.

For more information, see the Wardour Chapel Exhibition website.
