'Treasures from the Cope Chest' was the title of an exhibition at Lancaster Cathedral (29 June -17 July 2011), which had the subtitle 'An Exhibition of Liturgical Vestments Past and Present'. The exhibition included a wide range of ecclesiastical garments worn by catholic clergy throughout the centuries.

Some of the garments were on loan from other religious centres, such as Stonyhurst College (Lancashire), St Francis Xavier’s Church in Liverpool, private donors and parishes throughout the Diocese of Lancaster.
