You are invited to a fundraising talk on the extraordinary medieval wall paintings in St Andrew’s church by one of the country’s leading art conservators, Tobit Curteis

St Andrew’s beautiful medieval wall murals are national treasures – with a history which dates from the time of the Norman Conquest.  Tobit Curteis is giving a highly informative and interesting one-off talk exploring the historical context of these hugely significant paintings, their meaning and the light which they shed on medieval lives.  He will also explain the challenges of the current conservation project.

An excellent and authoritative speaker, Tobit trained in the conservation of wall paintings at the Courtauld Institute of Art in conjunction with the Getty Conservation Institute. He works in the UK and abroad and clients include English Heritage, the National Trust and the World Monument Fund. His current projects involve working at the cathedrals of York, Canterbury and St Paul’s as well as Westminster Abbey.

Come and learn more about the extraordinary history of these medieval murals. You will also be helping to ensure they are preserved for generations to come.

Tickets are £10 and include a glass of wine.
