Following the Launch of our Friends Community on Saturday, we are pleased to welcome our new friends!
Many new friends attended the launch and we were delighted to see some of our long-standing supporters joining our Friends Community. The Centre was open from mid-morning to allow visitors to see our newly-opened exhibition Light in the North: Modern Glass-painters of York, as well as a short film on the art of stained glass which we have produced in partnership with The Stained Glass Museum, Ely. Our Friends Community was formally launched with a toast to the Stained Glass Centre, following speeches from Peter Brown MBE, Director of York Civic Trust, Sarah Brown, Chairman of Trustees and Director of York Glaziers Trust, and Phil Thomas, Trustee and Church Buildings Officer for the Diocese of York.
Thank you to so many of our supporters and friends for joining us, we look forward to a bright future together!
