VISIT to WORCESTER: £47pp approximately - 22 places available
Wednesday 10 April 2019

Royal Worcester Porcelain Museum: The Museum holds the largest collection of Worcester porcelain in the world.

We will have a ‘Behind the Scenes Talk’ which includes an opportunity to handle some of the items in their china and archive stores and to hear sound bites from the exceptional audio history recordings where past workers use their own words to describe their jobs on the factory floor and an entertaining insight to the history of Royal Worcester.

Commandery: Worcester’s Civil War Story – step back into 1651 and discover intriguing characters, divided families and military tactics in an interactive experience, all housed in a beautiful Tudor building with a history on the site dating back a 1000 years, including the medieval painted chamber.

Worcester Cathedral: Is one of England’s loveliest cathedrals. With royal tombs of King John and Prince Arthur, medieval cloisters, ancient crypt and chapter house, and magnificent Victorian stained glass. There is also a fascinating ancient library and archive, which houses the second largest collection of medieval manuscripts in any cathedral in the UK. We will have a guided tour of this magnificent building.

As this visit is still in the planning stage, I am only accepting ‘Expressions of Interest’ at this time. If you are interested in joining the visit, please either email me at or write to me at Visits Secretary, 11 Summer Lake, South Cerney, Cirencester GL7 5LW. If you include your email address, I will keep you informed as I firm up the trips with the Museums etc.

I encourage you to invite friends who might be interested in joining The Arts Society to come as your guests.
