Sworders is once again proud to be sponsoring an evening of musical entertainment in a beautiful garden setting in Much Hadham.
Highlighted amongst the lots in our July Design sale are drawings by George Daniels (1854-1940) - perhaps the most accomplished British stained glass designer working in the late Gothic and early Renaissance idiom from the 1890s until the Second World War - including designs for an impressive five-light window in the north aisle of Manchester Cathedral and extant stained glass windows in Cambridgeshire and Suffolk churches.
Sworders are delighted to be hosting a timed auction of objects, events, and experiences on behalf of Beds & Herts Historic Churches Trust to aid the charity's fundraising for the restoration and repair of churches and chapels in Bedfordshire, Hertfordshire, and parts of Barnet.
