Friends event: Costume in the Bosses

Costume in the Bosses of Norwich Cathedral

An illustrated talk by Jean Smith, Cathedral guide and member of the Costume and Textile Association, on Thursday 21 April at 2.30pm in the Weston Room.

Norwich Cathedral is justly famous for its magnificent roof bosses. Carved and painted in the 14th and 15th centuries, many illustrate biblical events with figures wearing contemporary costume. Selected examples will allow a glimpse into how the stories were interpreted through the dress of the period.

Tickets are £6 for Friends of Norwich Cathedral and £9 for non-members.
