The Rt Revd Peter Price has been Bishop of Bath and Wells since 2003. He has been one of the Bishops in the House of Lords since 2008.
On Saturday 22 June we are holding a special retirement service for Bishop Peter in starting at 2pm in Wells Cathedral, followed by a party on Cathedral Green. All are welcome.
There are no tickets for this service and we anticipate that we will need to spill outside. Therefore speakers will be set up to allow everyone outside the cathedral to hear the service.
Following the service you are invited to a party on Cathedral Green featuring live music and the chance to meet friends, old and new, as well as to bid a very fond farewell to Peter and Dee. Please bring a blanket and a picnic!
By kind permission of the Phelps family at Palace Farm, we have been able to arrange for free
parking on Palace Field for those attending the Farewell Service and the Party on the
Green. Download a map and directions here.
