    Newcastle Cathedral Choir and Baroque Orchestra are giving a complete performance Handel’s Messiah.

    Tickets £15 plus £1.58 Eventbrite booking fee: https://handels-messiah-newcastle.eventbrite.co.uk

    The Girl Choristers, Lay Clerks and Choral Scholars of Newcastle Cathedral Choir will be giving an exciting and rare performance of Handel’s Messiah in the Cathedral.

    Many will be used to standard large scale performances of Britain’s favourite choral work, but this performance will feature the young choristers of the Cathedral Girls Choir, and the professional singers of the choir’s back row.

    The instrumentalists will be some of the North of England’s best early music players. They will be performing on the kind of instruments that would have been used in Handel’s first performance.

    The Shakespeare Club Gathering @ Newcastle Cathedral

    After running at Newcastle’s Lit and Phil for the past 4 years, Shakespeare Club is now ‘on the road’ and coming to the crypt of Newcastle Cathedral, as part of The Late Shows!

    Shakespeare Club is a free, public, informal, and friendly reading group devoted to helping everyone enjoy Shakespeare. Whatever you know (or think you don’t know) about Shakespeare, everyone’s opinion will be valued as you are encouraged to share your ideas about the play we’ll be looking at in this special session: Hamlet.

    Where better to think about what this play may say about the afterlife, and the slings and arrows of this life, than the Cathedral’s crypt?

    Shakespeare Club @ Newcastle Cathedral, will meet at 5:30pm on Saturday 18th May. The event will run between 5:30pm to approx 7pm. Following the Shakespeare Club, Lee Symons will be performing live as part of the Cathedral late show events.

    You can pick up one of 10 free copies of the play from the Cathedral (first come, first served!), or bring along your own edition. All are welcome!

    For more information, please contact Dr Adam Hansen, at Northumbria University (T: 0191 243 7193; E: adam.hansen@northumbria.ac.uk).

    Comments Off on Archbishops ask cathedrals and churches to toll bells for Notre Dame

    On Thursday 18th April Newcastle Cathedral Guild of Bellringers will toll the Bourdon bell for 7 minutes up to 6:30pm in support of the French people following the fire at Notre Dame.

    It follows a call from the Archbishops of Canterbury and York who have encouraged, where possible, all Cathedrals and Churches across England to toll a bell for 7 minutes at 7pm (or as close as can be accommodated) this Thursday, as a mark of solidarity following the devastating fire at Notre Dame Cathedral.

    This initiative has been suggested by the British Ambassador to France, Edward Llewellyn, and it is hoped that many will take part.
