Bradford Cathedral invite you to discover the beautiful early stained glass of Morris & Co., located in four areas, as well as other stunning stained glass by other Victorian designers, and a talk from Helen Elletson of the William Morris Society.

2023 marks 160 years since the first stained glass window was installed in Bradford Cathedral, created by Morris & Co.

The famous Victorian artist and designer William Morris founded Morris & Co. and, along with renowned artists such as Dante Gabriel Rossetti, Edward Burne-Jones, Ford Madox Brown, Philip Webb, Albert Moore, and Peter Paul Marshall, created many pieces of stunning stained glass, some of which are on display in Bradford Cathedral. Morris & Co. also produced religious textiles, a beautiful example of which is on display in the Lady Chapel, including during this open day.

Our stained glass also includes a figure, recently discovered to have been designed by William De Morgan.

To celebrate this occasion we will be opening our doors to show off our stained glass by Morris & Co, as well as other renowned Victorian designers, with the following attractions:

Helen Elletson – Research Curator at the William Morris Society – will be giving a talk on ‘The Art of William Morris and his Work in Bradford Cathedral’ at 1300.

Tours of the Cathedral: a general tour and one focused on the stained glass, both at 12:15 and 14:15.

Children’s activities including design your own stained glass windows and colouring, as well as colouring for adults.

In addition, there will be presentations, display boards and videos highlighting close-ups of our stained glass windows. There will also be booklets available with more information.
