  1. Hereford Cathedral will be hosting an exhibition of abstract pictures exploring meditation this Autumn. Journey To Your Centre – The Art of Meditation explores the practice of stilling, in order to experience the presence of God's love within. The exhibition by Bath based visual artist, Stephen Magrath will consist of eight different artworks which can provoke contemplation and reflection. Creating the paintings, which often feature circles and repeated pattern, acts as a meditative process for the artist and invites the viewer to centre themselves and discover inner peace. Stephen is an art teacher and meditation group leader who has exhibited his work nationwide. His work is motivated by an interest in health and a desire to contribute to the creative, emotional and spiritual wellbeing of himself and others in his community. He has qualifications in Social Psychology, Fine Art and Art Therapy and his work is in various collections including Wellcome Images, the University of Bath and Royal United Hospital Bath. Stephen Magrath, said: “This series of paintings and drawings are about inner movement towards an experience of peace, harmony and wholeness. Although essentially abstract they employ external geometric forms such as spheres, spirals and grids. I have worked up my designs on a variety of papers using graphite, ink, watercolour and marker pens.” The Revd Canon Chris Pullin, Chancellor at Hereford Cathedral, said: “We are delighted to be able to host this exhibition of pictures that focuses us on the practice of meditation. In a world where there is so much distraction, noise, busyness and loss of spiritual repose, it is vital that we all find help in ‘returning to the centre’. So many of the problems of the present age will only be healed when the human spirit is healed and at peace. This exhibition presents us with a way of meditating that can bring us to the source of that healing.” Journey To Your Centre – The Art of Meditation will be on display in the North Transept of the cathedral from Thursday 7 October – Wednesday 3 November 2021 during normal cathedral opening hours.
  2. Initial analysis from the Knife Angel Hereford team shows that at least 102,000 people visited the statue during its recent visit to the city. Photograph courtesy Jon Simpson In addition, more than 700 school children took part in associated workshops to learn about and discuss issues related to violent crime. A further 30 free to attend events were organised for the general public, including sessions about coping with stress after lockdown and bereavement workshops. The Herefordshire Walking Festival even included a visit to the Knife Angel along two of its routes! During its four week stay, the Knife Angel became a focal point for visitors to the city. Nearly 200 volunteers were recruited to provide advice and information. These included Samaritans and Vennture team members who were available to offer additional support for those who needed it. Thousands of photographs were taken of the Angel, including stunning shots from the official photographer, Jon Simpson. The Knife Angel was free to visit, but nearly £11,000 was donated on site by members of the public. Thanks to their generosity and to grant awards from West Mercia Police and Crime Commissioner, West Mercia Police, The National Lottery Community Fund, High Sheriffs of Herefordshire (2020/1 & 2021/2), Eveson CharitableTrust, Community Safety Partnership and the Clocktower Foundation, the Knife Angel team has gathered a legacy fund of more than £30,000 to continue with its work to raise awareness of the devastating impact of violent crime. The Knife Angel’s visit to Hereford was organised over 18 months by a core team, led by Alison Davies and Meryl Cain. Alison, who lost her own son to knife crime in 2018, says: More than 350 knives and two guns were surrendered to the two Knife Angel amnesty boxes (one located at the Knife Angel site at Hereford Cathedral, the other at Hinton Community Centre). These will now be melted down to produce a commemorative sculpture for the city. The Knife Angel left Hereford in the early hours of 12 July. It is currently at its home base in The British Ironworks in Oswestry, awaiting its next public appearance in Chelmsford, Essex in the September.

Prior to lockdown, the Angel toured around the UK and has become a national monument against violence and aggression in all its forms.

  9. Max and Simon in the Masons' Yard (2019) Simon Hudson, of Hudson Stonework Ltd based in the Cathedral Close, has been awarded 'The Master Craftsman Certificate' by The Worshipful Company of Masons in 2021. Simon in the Masons' Yard With over two decades of working as stone mason and carver in Herefordshire, Simon’s work can be seen not just at Hereford Cathedral but also many churches and heritage sites within the county and further afield. Hudson Stonework Ltd has been a resident of the Cathedral Close for ten years and its location means that the art of this traditional craft can be shared with all who pass by. The Masons’ Yard provokes much interest from visitors to the cathedral and it is not an uncommon sight to see Simon explaining his latest project or answering questions from those who have stopped to watch him at work. Alongside his work Simon has shared his wealth of knowledge, gained over almost 40 years, and trained two apprentices who have both received national recognition as a result of his mentoring. Alec Curtis and Max Cotterill received The Journeyman Certificate and The Apprentice Certificate respectively from The Worshipful Company of Constructors in 2019, making this latest award a hat trick of success for the company. l-r Simon Hudson, Alec Curtis, Mr Terry Withers FRICS & Max Cotterill c. Phil McCarthy receiving awards in 2019 The Revd Canon Andrew Piper, Precentor & Acting Dean at Hereford Cathedral, said, “The Chapter offers Simon our warmest congratulations on being awarded The Master Craftsman Certificate in recognition of his dedicated and exceptional work. It is a rare privilege for us to have such a skilled stonemason based in the Cathedral Close, and it is a pleasure to watch him practise and teach his craft on a daily basis. The work of Simon and his former apprentices can be seen on the cathedral and many churches across our diocese and beyond it: we all value their expertise, and we appreciate their friendliness and generosity in sharing their talent and enthusiasm with us. It is a delight to have Simon and his apprentices as part of our cathedral community.” The Worshipful Company of Masons is number thirty in the order of precedence of the Ancient Livery Companies of the City of London, as set by the Aldermen of the City in 1515. Their focus is to preserve and encourage the use of natural stone in the built environment, including supporting the training of craftsmen as well as the preservation and appreciation of iconic historic stone buildings. The Worshipful Company of Masons is at the forefront of supporting the craft of stonemasonry in education and preservation.

  16. The Three Choirs Festival has begun in Hereford and is a week-long programme of choral and orchestral concerts, cathedral services, solo and chamber music recitals, masterclasses, talks, theatre, exhibitions and walks, rotating each summer between the beautiful English cathedral cities of Hereford, Gloucester and Worcester. It is the oldest non-competitive classical music festival in the world, which celebrated its 300th anniversary in 2015. At the heart of the modern festival are the large-scale evening concerts featuring the Three Choirs Festival Chorus and the Philharmonia Orchestra, which has been resident at the festival since 2012. The main festival’s packed schedule of daytime events is augmented by a community programme which varies slightly in style in each city. The Three Choirs Festival is run by dedicated voluntary committees in Hereford, Worcester and Gloucester, supported by a small professional management team based at the Three Choirs Festival Association’s office in Gloucester. The Three Choirs Festival, which was first held in 1715, is probably the oldest music festival in the world. The Festival is held in turn in one of the three cathedral cities of Gloucester, Hereford and Worcester. This year the Festival takes place between 28 July and 4 August and, by rotation, it will be hosted by the cathedral and city of Hereford. Click HERE for tickets and more details.
