Hereford’s got so much going for it.
The Mappa Mundi And Chained Library Exhibition
Hereford's greatest treasure is a unique medieval map constructed on a single sheet of calf skin vellum. The 17th-century Chained Library is also very special and includes the eighth-century Hereford Gospels.
Michelle Rumney: Re-Making Maps Of The Mind
The artist, who works with paper, thread and maps, has been inspired by the newly opened pilgrimage route of St Thomas Way to look at the ways people make geographic sense of the world around them.
Sounds Divine Exhibition
A history of music-making at the Cathedral includes original manuscripts of works by Sir Edward Elgar, Samuel Sebastian Wesley and Dame Ethel Smyth along with the Hereford Breviary, a unique medieval manuscript.
Nineteen Twenties Summer Beach Fun
A 1920s-style children's sandpit and family activities including puppet-making celebrate the legacy of Roger Parr who redesigned the riverside Weir Gardens during that decade.
Cider Museum & King Offa Cider Brandy Distillery
Housed in a former cider factory, the museum chronicles the story of cider-making down the centuries. Exhibits cover every aspect of the process, from advertising material to presses, bottling equipment and drinking accessories.
Violette Szabo GC Museum
This tiny museum commemorates the bravery of a young woman who was sent twice into Occupied France during the Second World War as part of the SOE (Special Operations Executive).
The museum traces the history of drinking water from the cave-dwellers up to the present day through working engines, display panels, illuminated displays, guidebooks and films.
