St Nicholas Priory is hosting an event on Tuesday 14 March to raise funds for Exeter Historic Buildings Trust, the charity that takes care of the priory on behalf of the city.
The evening event features a lecture by Dr Clare Maudling about Mint Lane, the area surrounding the priory, during the 1920s and 1930s.
Dr Maudling is a postdoctoral interdisciplinary research fellow at the University of Exeter who works across social and economic history, politics and urban development.
Grade I listed St Nicholas Priory was founded in 1087 by William of Normandy.
Following the dissolution of the monasteries its remaining buildings became a prominent Elizabethan town house.
It was subsequently subdivided into several smaller houses and business premises before being restored and becoming a museum in 1916.
The Forgotten Quarter: The Mint Lane Area Between the Wars is at 7pm on Tuesday 14 March 2023 at St Nicholas Priory in Mint Lane. Tickets cost £10.
Visit the St Nicholas Priory website for more information and to book tickets.
The event will also be livestreamed via Zoom. Email [email protected] for an invitation.
