SEE US IN A NEW LIGHT
Online panel discussion events
This April, Newcastle Cathedral will be delivering two exclusive online panel discussion events, exploring the research, work and people behind our monumental regeneration project, supported by The National Lottery Heritage Fund.
The events are 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.
After each of these events, there will be a chance to quiz our panel of experts further, so please have your questions ready!
Turning a Dream into Reality took place on Wednesday 7 April, 6:30-8pm. Our next online event is:
Protecting our Regional Treasures
Wednesday 28 April, 6:30-8pm via Zoom
Lindy Gilliland, the Cathedral’s Common Ground in Sacred Space Project Manager, will explain how the project has been delivered in light of the pandemic; the challenges and surprises, and how important it is to protect this important historic building at the heart of Newcastle’s heritage.
|Anthony Short, Site Foreman at Historic Property Restoration Ltd, will talk about the skills and problem solving needed on this very special project – from moving over 150 one tonne ledger stones to laying a complex network of underground heating.|
|Dr David Carrington, Founder and Managing Director at Skillington Workshop, will highlight some of the delicate conservation work that has been carried out on artefacts such as the Cathedral’s ledger stones and 14th century ‘Unknown Knight’ effigy.|
|Dan Rose, Designer and Director at Raskl Limited based in Newcastle’s Ouseburn Valley, explains the ideas behind his company’s designs for a new altar, ambo and choir stalls: furniture for the future that also celebrates the Cathedral’s rich history.|
Lindy will chat with some of these key partners who helped to solve some of the issues and protect the Cathedral’s treasured 900-year-old history.
