Welcome to the Marlott Cultural Society!

This is the text for a demonstration front page for My Society Website.


Anyone who knows the login ID can change this text. It's as easy as writing an email.

If you like, you can use bullet points like this:

  • Point Number One
  • Point Number Two

Alternatively, you could have a numbered list like this:

  1. The first point
  2. The second point.

The text can be formatted a number of ways. You can write parts in bold to add emphasis. Italics are also available.

You might have a paragraph that you want highlighted.
With one click, it can be displayed like this, with a vertical bar running down the left.
To get this, highlight the text in the editor and press the 'quotes' icon.

Finally, you can add links. For example, if you have an application form for an event, you can encourage people to download the form.

Here is a document that could be the latest newsletter. It's actually just a sample document. You can upload documents to the website very easily.

Remember: you don't need to be an IT genius to be able to update your website. If you know how to send an email, or perhaps write a letter on your computer, then you have all the skills you need!


Our Next Event is on August 15th 2022

Trip to Ely Cathedral


The city's origins lay in the foundation of an abbey in 673, one mile (1.6 km) to the north of the village of Cratendune on the Isle of Ely, under the protection of Saint Etheldreda, daughter of King Anna. This first abbey was destroyed in 870 by Danish invaders and rededicated to Etheldreda in 970 by Ethelwold, Bishop of Winchester.[25] The abbots of Ely then accumulated such wealth in the region that in the Domesday survey (1086) it was the 'second richest monastery in England'. The first Norman bishop, Simeon, started building the cathedral in 1083. The octagon was rebuilt by sacrist Alan of Walsingham between 1322 and 1328 after the collapse of the original nave crossing on 22 February 1322. Ely's octagon is considered 'one of the wonders of the medieval world'. Architectural historian Nikolaus Pevsner believes the octagon 'is a delight from beginning to end for anyone who feels for space as strongly as for construction' and is the 'greatest individual achievement of architectural genius at Ely Cathedral'.

Cosmati Mosaics

April 4th 2019

Trulli, Puglia, Italy. The Cosmatesque style takes its name from the family of the Cosmati, which flourished in Rome during the twelfth and thirteenth centuries and practiced the art of mosaic. The Cosmati work has this peculiarity, that it is a glass mosaic used in combination with marble. At times it is inlaid on the white marble architraves of doors, on the friezes of cloisters, the flutings of columns, and on sepulchralmonuments. Again, it frames panels, of porphyry or other marbles, on pulpits, episcopal chairs, screens, etc., or is itself used as a panel. The color is brilliant — gold tesserae being freely used. While more frequent in Rome than elsewhere, its use is not confined to that city. Among other places it is found in the Cappella Palatina in Palermo
