On Friday 18 March acclaimed author and broadcaster Melvyn Bragg, Lord Bragg of Wigton, joins us to explore the way in which William Tyndale’s revolutionary translation of the Bible, which led to the King James version, helped form the patterns of modern English we use today.
This fascinating lecture is part of an evening of related events which begin at 5.45pm with our regular service of Choral Evensong, on this occasion infused with the language of the King James Bible. It will also be possible to purchase tickets for a pre-lecture drinks reception in the Fratry Hall where books from our historic collections influenced by Tyndale’s work will be on display.
Lord Bragg’s books, William Tyndale: A Brief History and The Book of Books: The Radical Impact of the King James Bible 1611-2011 are both currently available in the Cathedral’s Gift Shop, and will be available to purchase on the night of the event itself.
Tickets are now available for this exclusive event via our BUY TICKETS page.
