The College of St Barnabas reaches its 125th anniversary of foundation next year, and will be holding its first Heritage Open Day on Saturday, September 21st from 10.00 to 16.00.
Visitors will have a chance to visit one of Surrey’s hidden treasures, the College of St Barnabas, a late Victorian home for retired Anglicans, set up by Canon William Cooper to ‘rescue’ clergy who had been abandoned in Victorian workhouses. Gain insight into the ongoing story of this fascinating place with tours of the College taking place in the Libraries, Refectory, and Chapels, including one with pre-Raphaelite paintings.
Plenty of entertainment for all the family with a miniature steam railway, model railway, a variety of talks, displays and ‘pop-up’ performances by the Collective, a diverse choir – and more. Refreshments will be available throughout the day.
