Community History Project Launch Event

Posted on: March 28th, 2018

Newcastle Cathedral is launching a new volunteer-led community history project on Wednesday 2 May 2018 with the aim of discovering more about the history and heritage of the Cathedral and its place in the city.

Community History Project Launch Event


From researching the Cathedral’s internationally important collection of ledger stones, to discovering more about the monuments, windows and military colours which make the Cathedral so unique, the group will have a chance to make a real impact into our knowledge and understanding of the Cathedral and how it was used in the past.

To launch the project, the Cathedral is holding a special launch event, including a tour of the building and a talk from the Cathedral’s Archaeologist, Dave Heslop. At the event, there is also the opportunity to learn more about volunteering and how your valuable contribution can make a positive effort to the research going forwards.

The event is held on Wednesday 2 May 2018 at the Cathedral and is free to attend.

Two time slots are available to book: either 2pm or 6pm. Please choose the time that suits you best.

All are welcome to attend. Please reserve your free place via Eventbrite:
