Study Weekend 2017 - North East Wales and Chester
North East Wales & Chester
Thursday 20 April - Sunday 23 April 2017
The Museum's 2017 Study Weekend will take place in North East Wales and Chester. The Welsh counties of Denbighshire and Flintshire are home to the most significant medieval stained glass to be found in Wales, as well as a range of stunning glass from the 19th and 20th centuries. The ancient Roman fortress of Chester, in north-west England, and its Cathedral dedicated to Christ and the Blessed Virgin Mary has representative examples of stained glass from several significant Victorian studios, as well as notable modern windows by Alan Younger and Rosalind Grimshaw.
We are pleased to offer in 2017 a Student Bursary place for a student to attend our Study Weekend. For more information about our Student Bursary, download an Application form (word.doc / PDF)
We will be staying at the Rossett Hall Hotel, near Chester, at the gateway to North Wales. The hotel is 10 minutes’ drive from Chester and Wrexham, where there are rail stations with connections to London (Euston) and Birmingham. Free car parking for guests is available at the hotel.
