Plus, make the most of the glorious setting with teas by the river. Music on the day comes from the Navy Larks Choir and Amesbury Town Band. Sunday 2pm to 5pm.
Salisbury Cathedral’s newest exhibition is a feast for the eyes. 12 beautifully colourful embroidered panels are hanging throughout the building, some are as large as 8ft by 11ft. The panels were made by Devon based textile artist Jacqui Parkinson who was inspired by the book of Genesis, the first book of the Bible that tells the 7-day the creation story. The vibrant pieces took three years to prepare and contain eight million stitches! The Threads Through Creation exhibition runs until 26th September.
This Sunday sees the launch of The Chapel Live with the first Salisbury Comedy Club instalment. The comedy nights kick-off with Seann Walsh, who’s a regular on comedy panel shows and was a contestant on Strictly Come Dancing in 2018. Get ready for some quick wit and lots of laughter this Sunday from 7pm.
