About the Event

Dating from 1087 the building was originally a Benedictine monastery. The Monastery enjoyed gifts of land and buildings and was and important and lively. During the dissolution the majority of the monastic buildings were torn down, however this one survived to become an Elizabethan town house. Over the centuries it became five different houses and businesses until it eventually fell into disrepair. In 1913, saved from decay the Priory was taken on by the Exeter corporation who restored it to its original and beautiful monastic design. And so goes the rich historical tapestry of this building. Come with us and immerse yourself in history, hear the monks footsteps as they make their way to mass at midnight, listen carefully and you may hear the echo's of voices long silenced.
