Official reopening of St Edmund’s Chapel

St Edmunds Chapel

The official reopening of St Edmund’s Chapel took place on 19 September 2019 and the event also marked the start of the cultural programme which will feature a series of events in the Chapel over the next 8 months.

The evening programme included an update on the restoration works by Diederik Smet, Dover’s Destination Manager , an outline of 5 upcoming events curated by Nicola Dunsbee and a fascinating history of the Chapel by Mr Paul Smye-Rumsby. The event was rounded off with pieces for cello played by Julie Peat, followed by a fantastic spread at the Allotment restaurant.

The first event in our cultural programme is a concert by Grammy-nominated violin soloist Peter Sheppard Skærved on 26 October. This promises to be a fantastic event that will take full advantage of the Chapel’s wonderful acoustics.
