Jesuit school part of ‘Gold and Glory’ exhibition at Hampton Court Palace

August 23, 2021

Stonyhurst College was delighted to be part of the Choral Evening Prayer Service in the Chapel Royal at Hampton Court on the occasion of the ‘Gold and Glory’ exhibition on display at Hampton Court Palace.

Stonyhurst is honoured to be a major supporter of this extraordinary exhibition, on now, lending the Henry VII Chasuble, among other artefacts.

The Choral Service was led by Reverend Canon Paul Wright MA, Sub-Dean of Her Majesty’s Chapels, and Reverend Father Damian Howard SJ, Provincial of the Jesuits in Britain, and was well attended by members of the Stonyhurst family, including alumni, current and past parents.

Pupils in the choir as well as pupils from other British Jesuit schools were treated to an in-depth educational visit to the exhibition, led by our Curator, Dr Jan Graffius FSA, before providing our guests with a beautiful performance in the Chapel.

Following the Service, guests were invited to gather for a drinks reception in Hampton Court and it was wonderful to see so many members of the Stonyhurst community together again reminiscing about all things Stonyhurst, whilst also looking to the future.

This special occasion was a combined effort between the Development Team, Collections, the Music Department, The Stonyhurst Foundation and Hampton Court. Our sincere thanks go to the team at Hampton Court, without whom this event would not have been possible.
