Newcastle Cathedral goes Back to the Future

At Newcastle Cathedral this spring, we’re going ‘back to the future’, as we prepare to reopen following our historic transformation, supported by The National Lottery Heritage Fund.

In April, there will be two exclusive ‘Pay As You Feel’ online panel discussion events, exploring the research, work and people involved in the project.

A time capsule appeal is also underway, encouraging members of the public to get in touch with unique items and objects to help tell Geordies of the future about life in 2021.

Time Capsule

We want to capture the spirit and diversity of this amazing city through our time capsule, due to be buried in spring 2021. The hope is to display the chosen items – including photographs of buried objects – in an accompanying exhibition at the Cathedral later this year.

The events come shortly before the completion of the £6M National Lottery Heritage Fund project, Common Ground in Sacred Space.

The first online panel discussion, ‘Turning a Dream into Reality’, will be held on Wednesday 7 April at 6:30pm on Zoom, bringing together an expert panel comprising Jane Kennedy (Cathedral Architect), Dave Heslop (Cathedral Archaeologist) and the Very Revd Geoff Miller, Dean of Newcastle.

Sarah Stewart OBE, former Chief Executive of the NewcastleGateshead Initiative and currently High Sheriff of Tyne and Wear, will be running proceedings and digging deeper into how a spiritual space is being enhanced for 21st-century visitors

Online event

Tickets for the first online panel discussion are available via Eventbrite, with a minimum fee of £1 to attend. We would be very grateful if you are in a position to donate more; a minimum donation of £5 is recommended as a guide.

The second online event, ‘Protecting our Regional Treasures’ (Wednesday 28 April 6:30pm), will explore how the project has been delivered despite the pandemic; the challenges and surprises uncovered, and how important it is to protect this historic building at the heart of Newcastle’s heritage.

Tickets will be released on Wednesday 31 March at 10am. Click here to receive a reminder when they become available.
