Turning a Dream Into Reality – Online panel discussion

7th April @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Our monumental regeneration project, supported by The National Lottery Heritage Fund,  has been many years in the planning. At this virtual event, some of the key individuals involved will provide the history and detail of this fascinating re-modelling project

Speakers
Jane Kennedy, Cathedral Architect, will talk about the development of the project, and how re-shaping the space in consultation with congregation, clergy, advisory bodies and the community was an important part of her vision.
Dave Heslop, Cathedral Archaeologist, explores the evolving face of this building over the last 900 years and the focus of the restoration and remodelling, including over 150 ledger stones. What stories were important to capture? What was the essence of the project from an archaeological perspective?
The Very Revd Geoff Miller, Dean of Newcastle, will talk about the genesis of the project and the importance of enhancing a spiritual space for the 21st century and how this influenced the heritage vision.

We are delighted that 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 with the expert panel.

This event is hosted on a Pay As You Feel basis (with a mandatory 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.
