An evening with the curator

On a beautiful June evening the Development department held their first ‘Evening with the Curator’ in the Tolkien Library at Stonyhurst St. Mary’s Hall. After a warm welcome to guests from the Headmaster, the Curator Jan Graffius gave an informative and highly entertaining introduction to some of the items in the Stonyhurst collections. Jan’s knowledge and enthusiasm kept everyone riveted as she spoke about the various items on display. These included the Book of Hours of Mary, Queen of Scots, the relic of the right eye of Blessed Edward Oldcorne SJ and the elaborately embroidered St Winefride’s chalice veil. Jan finished by showing an extremely moving photograph taken by the late Tim Hetherington (OS 81-89).

Development’s next event will be held on Thursday November 6th.
