Darrell Buttery starts a new series of walks looking at famous names connected with different areas of the city. The first one will concentrate on Micklegate. We meet at Bar Convent where in the lovely chapel Sister Agatha will speak of the convent’s foundress, Mary Ward, and also St. Margaret Clitherow.

Moving along Micklegate we will hear about the many notable people connected with the area, including the remarkable group of men known as the York Virtuosi in the late C17th. Inside Holy Trinity Church we will see monuments to other famous citizens.

Meet at Bar Convent

Cost : £10
