Annual Handover Ceremony with Lord Mayor in attendance
‘Bread and Keys’
Our annual ceremony commemorates Exeter City Council’s handing over the key for St Nicholas Priory to Exeter Historic Buildings Trust. In a symbolic act, the Lord Mayor exchanges our favourite key for a loaf of bread (a symbolic payment of rent) from our local baker to seal the agreement. Come and join us in celebrating our first anniversary and learn how to support the trust as members and volunteers in our effort to keep the building open to the public.
This event will also start the Heritage Open Days at St Nicholas Priory.
