Heritage Open Days - Overt Cover

Thu 08/09/16 3:00 PM - 5:30 PM

 OVERT COVERT is a one day festival celebrating the history and memories of the unloved and underused space St. Maurice’s Covert, a pocket space tucked beside the High Street.

Coinciding with Heritage Open Days, on Thursday, the church tower will be open to the public and tours will take place to allow visitors to understand the history of St. Maurice’s and its historic relationship as one of the gateways into the Cathedral Precinct.

The undercroft of the covert will be turned into a multimedia space, with screenings and talks to take place throughout the day into the evening. All are invited to come discover the past, present and the future of the Covert.

Guided tours of the tower take place every 30 minutes from 3pm until 5pm, booking required.
