The St Sepulchre Chapel at St Mary Magdalene’s was created in 1894-5 by Ninian Comper, the last of the great Gothic Revival architects.

Panelists and speakers to include Oliver Caroe (Surveyor of the Fabric to St Paul’s Cathedral), Janet Gough OBE  (former Director Cathedrals and Church buildings, Church of England), Alan Powers (widely published author on 20th century art and design), Holly Henry (Volunteer Manager Grand Junction), and Fr Henry Everett (Vicar of St Mary Magdalene’s). Chaired by Ayla Lepine, Ahmanson Fellow in Art and Religion at the National Gallery.
