Hereford Cathedral Library and Archives present a wide variety of changing exhibitions and displays throughout the year, drawing from our extensive collections. Our exhibitions feature manuscript and early printed books, archive documents, artefacts and loan items. There are usually three themed exhibitions each year but we also display single items for shorter periods such as the 8th century Hereford Gospels and Magna Carta. These displays are located within the Mappa Mundi and Chained Library exhibition. Admission to the Temporary Exhibition is included in the Mappa Mundi ticket price.
Laden with Fruit
Laden with Fruit showcases literal and symbolic fruits in the cathedral’s collections using items including the Victorian Herefordshire Pomona and 15th century cyder Bible. The exhibition also features new artwork by Jeanette McCulloch and the Ledbury-based BookArt Club inspired by botanical illustrations in the Cathedral’s collections.
Laden with Fruit is on show within Mappa Mundi and Chained Library until Saturday 30 December 2023. Normal admission charges apply.
