Come and See Us

We have Meadow Arts 'Watermark Exhibition' running from 28th January until 3rd June 2023. Check below for our up-to-date exhibition opening times, week by week.

St Swithun’s is a grade 1 listed building situated in the heart of Worcester City Centre. There has been a church on this site since at least the twelfth century, a new tower was built in the 15th century and the nave was remodelled in the 1730s and has remained intact since then.

We welcome you to come and explore this fine example of a Georgian nave or to experience one of our events. Our East entrance opens up onto The Shambles and the west entrance at the base of the tower is on an alley known as Church Street.

We currently have a free exhibition in St Swithun's called Watermark, curated by Meadow Arts and running between 28th January until the 3rd June.
