A big day

St John’s College Librarian, Kathryn McKee, places the Gisburne Bible in the display case

The Gisburne Bible arrived back in Guisborough today for the first time in almost 500 years. It is now in the stunning display case, ready for the official opening of the display by the well-known author, Philippa Gregory, at 10.30am tomorrow.

And we also put up the spectacular embroidered banner that has been made by thirty local members of Guisborough Embroiderers’ Guild to commemorate this year’s 900th anniversary.

Come along and see for yourself – the display continues until 29 October.

A case for…

Today the display case for the Gisburne Bible was delivered and assembled by Stuart and Barry from About Presentation. It looks great, even without its contents, which are due to arrive tomorrow. Thank you to Stuart and Barry for all their hard work.
