Chichester Cathedral Restoration & Development Trust's successful appeal has resulted in the stabilisation and restoration of the magnificent Tudor Panel Paintings by Lambert Barnard in the Cathedral.  We were delighted that His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales agreed to be the Patron of this appeal to save these nationally significant paintings.

These pictures, painted in the 16th Century on wooden panels, represent a magnificent example of Renaissance art, and are of national importance.  They contain images of Kings and Queens, and of King Henry VIII conferring Royal protection on Chichester Cathedral.  Believed to be the largest surviving paintings of their kind, they are on display in the Transepts of the Cathedral ....... click button below to read more

The then Dean of Chichester, The Very Reverend Nicholas Frayling, commented at the time:  ‘This is a wonderful encouragement to all of us who are working to save these important works of art for the nation.  The Prince’s Patronage is an indication of their significance, and will be a great help as we seek funding for this ambitious project.’
