The Past in the Present - Pottery by Elizabeth Raeburn and Rodney Lawrence

The abbey ruins have provided an exciting starting point for an exhibition of ceramics by two Somerset potters. The work of Elizabeth Raeburn and Rodney Lawrence is well known and their beautifully crafted pottery has been widely exhibited and is in museums across the world. It is also owned and much loved by many private collectors.

We are committed to making the abbey and events held at the abbey accessible to everyone. We may provide disabled ticket holders (who would be unable to attend without a PA - personal assistant / carer / essential companion) with a ticket at no additional cost for their PA, if they are in receipt of one of the following:

  • Middle or Higher rate DLA for care and/or mobility
  • Receipt of Personal Independence Payment (PIP)
  • Evidence of being severely sight impaired
  • CredAbility Access Card (+1 category requirement), see www.accesscard.org.uk
  • A recognised Assistance Dog ID Card

If you do not have any of the above evidence but are unable to attend the abbey without a PA you are welcome to post or email copies of any additional evidence that supports your application. Applications are judged on a case-by-case basis. Tickets for events are sold on a first come, first served basis.

If the event is organised by an external organisation, the above will not necessarily apply and you will need to liaise directly with the organisers. If you wish to contact the organisers please contact info@glastonburyabbey.com and we will put you in touch.
