David Holgate is probably best known for the statues of Mother Julian and St Benedict on the Cathedral's west front, but this remarkable man’s work is spread throughout the Cathedral, the rest of the county and beyond.

An accomplished musician, sculptor, calligrapher and an innovative teacher, his life and work seemed to be united in a brave and inexhaustible search for meaning and beauty in everything he did. 

Exhibition free to attend. Open 9.30am - 4.30pm Monday to Saturday and 10.00am - 3.00pm on Sundays.

In conjunction with this exhibition apprentices from the Stonemasons Guild will be demonstrating their work carving bosses from a portable lodge based in the Cloisters, Monday 6 - Saturday 11 February 2017 (9.30am - 4.00pm).
