SEE US IN A NEW LIGHT
Monday Organ Recitals
We are very keen that the Cathedral’s organ recitals remain an important part of the cultural life of the city and region.
We are so very grateful to our friends at Jesmond United Reformed Church for agreeing to host these, while we have the builders in.
Recitals will continue to take place here on Mondays at 1:05pm until we are in a position to resume worship in the Cathedral later this summer.

Jesmond United Reformed Church is a little more than five minutes’ walk from Jesmond Metro Station. If you presently come into Newcastle by train, the metro line can be accessed at Central Station, you can board any train for ‘St James via The Coast’ or ‘The Airport’, and travel for three stops.
Refreshments will be available before and after the recitals. The organ at Jesmond URC was, like our organ, built by TC Lewis, and completed in 1890. Its only rebuild was by Henry Willis III in the 1950s, so this instrument remains one of quality, beauty, and distinction. We wish to thank in advance the secretary, elders, staff, and congregation of Jesmond URC for their generosity in enabling our series to continue and flourish. We do hope that you can join us.
