Friends Launch and Open Day 22nd November

Join us on Saturday 22nd November at the Stained Glass Centre to celebrate the launch of our Friends Community! 

The Centre will be open from 10:30am until dusk, providing the opportunity to see our new exhibition ‘Light in the North: Modern Glass-Painters of York’, meet our Trustees and Volunteers and join our Friends Community.

The Launch of the Friends Community will begin at 12.00pm, with short speeches on the plans for the future of the Stained Glass Centre accompanied by canapes and sparkling wine.

To help us make sure that there are enough canapes and bubbly to go around, please let us know if you will be joining us for the Launch by emailing [email protected].

We hope to see you at our Friends Community Launch!


Our new exhibition ‘Light in the North: Modern Glass-Painters of York’ will showcase work by the York artists Harry Stammers, Harry Harvey, Sep Waugh, Ann Sotheran and Helen Whittaker, and is a rare chance to see a recently-discovered piece by eighteenth-century artist William Peckitt.
