Exhibition of antique vestments
Friday 1st May 2015

An exhibition of antique vestments is planned to take place in St Agatha's Church, Portsmouth in June, 2015. The event will be opened by Mgr Keith Newton, together with Dom  Cuthbert Brogan, Abbot of Farnborough Abbey, on Friday, 12th June, at 11 am.

The exhibition will be open from 10am until 4pm on Sat 13th June, it will be closed on Sunday and open again on Monday 15th to Friday 19th June 10am to 4pm. Light refreshments will be available.

The collection includes Banners, Copes, High Mass Sets and Low Mass Sets. Ranging from the late 18C to the early 20C, the collection is quite unique and features some of the finest examples of the art of embroidery and gold work including vestments from Belgium, France, as well as fine quality English convent work of the 19C including work by Franciscan nuns and the Anglican Clewer Sisters. There is even  a  chasuble made, it is claimed, for Lord Halifax, in India.

The exhibition is a rare opportunity to see items of great beauty and quality and a welcome change for those who are sick of the sight of polyester!

The exhibition venue is likewise worthy of a visit in its own right - a Grade II star Italianate basilica filled with fine furnishings of the 18C, 19C and early 20C.

Car parking available and only 10 mins walk from Portsmouth town railway station. Follow route for historic ships - M275.
