Ashley Jackson at Bradford Cathedral
Synonymous with Yorkshire, Ashley Jackson’s paintings reveal the relationship between the artist and the wonderful county he paints.His greatest fear is that we fail to protect the landscape for future generations, and he believes passionately that we must ensure the gift of art and culture is passed on to our young or the world will be a poorer place to live.
Listen to Ashley, in conversation with Canon Sam Corley
as we open the exhibition at 7.30pm on Thursday 4th July Tickets £8 / £6 concessions
A new Dean for Bradford Cathedral
A Nottingham priest is to be the new Dean of Bradford. The Revd Canon Jerry Lepine is currently Rector of St Leonards, Wollaton in the Diocese of Southwell & Nottingham where he has been since 2002.
The Bishop of Bradford, the Rt Revd Nick Baines, says, "I'm delighted at the appointment of the Revd Canon Jerry Lepine to be the new Dean of Bradford. We need someone to fill the gap left behind by Dr David Ison, now Dean of St Paul's, London, and Jerry fits the bill. He brings many gifts and vast experience. At a time of challenge and potential change, he is a man who will spot the opportunities. I look forward to welcoming Jerry and his wife, Christine, in the summer".
The Cathedral shop sells a range of affordable gifts, inspirational books, cards, jewellery, and branded items to remind you of your visit to Bradford Cathedral.
Cards are mainly sourced from Woodmansterne, Glebe Cottage, Chris Creaser and Fitzwilliam Museum, plus Michelle Gillam-Hull who uses silk off-cuts from her work making clergy stoles to create simple but beautiful cards.
Branded merchandise includes post cards, mugs, note pads, bookmarks, fridge magnets and, coming shortly, glass paperweights incorporating a 3D image of the Cathedral.
With all this in stock, the shop really is a veritable treasure trove!
