    The ‘calendar’ page under the ‘talks and tours’ tab is currently up to date; I do not know what will be happening at Bristol next year, I’m afraid.

    Could you give me some detail about the March Wiltshire churches event, please.

      Of course, and thank you for your interest. The tour is a two-dayer: on day one we will see Anglo-Saxon at St Laurence, Bradford-upon-Avon; Romanesque at St John’s, Devizes; Early English at Bishop’s Cannings and (if time) Potterne. The following day we will visit Urchfont for Decorated, Edington for Decorated/Perpendicular, and Steeple Ashton for Perpendicular. If we don’t get to Potterne on day one we will go there on day two. Of course at each place we will look round the entire church, but the attraction of the sequence is the chance to see a memorable example of each style, and to see them in chronological order. The days will run from 10.30am (about) 4.30pm, with about an hour’s lunchbreak. Donations to each church are included, but all other logistics – transport, refreshments, etc – are down to participants. Parking information and driving routes will be provided in advance. I should add that dates are yet to be set in stone for this one: it could be the previous weekend (I am working on resolving this as we speak); and I should apologise as the web page is a little unclear: it should read £35 *per day*. I’ve just edited the page to reflect this. If you are interested in coming along give me your email address and we can take things forward that way.

      Indeed! We are just working to firm up two dates for next year. Hope to publish in next couple of weeks. If you’d like me to add you to my mailing list so you get an email when the announcement is made, do say.

    Hello Mr. Jon Cannon,Dear Sir, I just checked if it would be possible to join you in spring 2017 to do the MARTIN RANDALL tour.It will not be possible because of several reasons and I´m very, very sorry because of that.My fascination for English Cathedrals startet last year on a first visit on the island.A longer study of Gloucester (3 Choirs Festival 2016), short visits of Hereford, Tewkesbury and a guided tour in Worcester. We, my wife and me are thus seized by the atmosphere, the history and the spirituality of those incredible wonders of the world..if it would be possible I could visit this festival every year or second option: Visit more of the sacred places in your country. Maybe our budget would be sufficient for a guided tour in Wiltshire with you. Could you advise me how to reach the goal I´m dreaming of? I´m studying your magnificent book about Great English Cathedrals…
    It would be a great pleasure to learn more and more and to feel the distinctive unforgettable atmosphere again…
