Talk: Lantern Tower Film Premiere

2nd December @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

£1

During lockdown, Newcastle Cathedral worked with local history expert and tour guide, Alex Iles from Iles Tours and Chris Thompson, Managing Director at Media Borne to create a piece of work we are extremely proud of. With this short film, we set out to capture the mysteries, historical stories, and sheer beauty of our iconic Lantern Tower over its 600-year history – and we don’t think the film will disappoint!

One of the aims of this project was to make the spectacular views from the tower accessible to everyone, even if you are unable (or unwilling) to climb the 162 steps to the top.

We’re delighted that Alex has agreed to introduce the film, and talk about why the Cathedral and its history resonates so much with him. Chris will discuss his involvement with the project and explain how he managed to capture such beautiful visuals. You are warmly invited to join us – regardless of whether you have a head for heights!

  • Film duration including intro: approx. 25 mins
  • Followed by a talk and discussion lasting approx. 50 mins
