More than a Minster

Running from October 2010 – June 2011, this exhibition illuminated the variety of churches across Beverley through history, from its two great Medieval churches to non-conformist chapels, from St John of Beverley RC Church to the Quakers, and everything between and beyond.


Two Great Churches

Running from June – November 2015, this exhibition was staged to celebrate the original launch of the Two Churches One Town collaboration (now a registered charity, having raised significant sums to help restore the churches).
