The self-styled writer, clergyman and fool Fergus Butler-Gallie, presents a wickedly witty journey around some of Britain’s most peculiar churches, their eccentric characters and interesting tales. This light-hearted and enlightening trip will, of course, include some of Cumbria’s own gems.
Butler-Gallie is a young curate in the Church of England who once accidentally appeared on Only Connect. He is (according to his own taxonomy) a Bon Viveur first and foremost, with a soupçon of Roguishness and Prodigality. His first debut book ‘A Field Guide to the English Clergy’ (named ‘Book of the Year’ by both The Times and BBC History Magazine) is available from the Cathedral’s gift shop.
Tickets for this event cost £20 and include a buffet, starting at 6.30pm, followed by the talk at 7.30pm.
Ticket for 16-18yrs £5, Under-16s Free.
Part of the Cathedral’s 900th anniversary programme, supported by Principal Partner: Hayward Tod.
