Getting Ready for Opening

August 2021

In her penultimate video update during the building works, Project Manager Lindy Gilliland provides a glimpse at the final stages of our major redevelopment project, Common Ground in Sacred Space, supported by the National Lottery Heritage Fund.

In this video, members of the team from Historic Property Restoration Ltd. are hard at work in the Nave and on the new outdoor plaza and terrace.

Cleaning is also underway, with specialist conservators and dedicated volunteers bringing incredible attention to detail to their work.

In addition, there’s new furniture, interpretation panels and audio-visual displays to look forward to, as well as the newly conserved medieval font, which has been brought back to life thanks to generous support from Northumbrian Water.

We want to keep some things under wraps for now; however, keep your eyes peeled for Lindy’s next video, highlighting the final preparations ahead of opening…


Newcastle Cathedral’s Common Ground in Sacred Space project, supported by the National Lottery Heritage Fund, is due for completion in summer 2021 – with a public reopening date in mid-August 2021.
