This Jacob Epstein exhibition brings masterpieces from national collections together for the first time, including the extraordinary Jacob and the Angel from Tate Britain, to the iconic setting of the Cathedral. 

These sculptures will lead us to explore themes of reconciliation and our own humanity supported by a programme of talks, workshops, yoga, tours and services.
