    The BBC will deliver an early Christmas present to the North East this December with free screenings of one of its most eagerly-awaited festive TV show, the Doctor Who Christmas Special.

    Starting in Hartlepool and finishing just before the big day in Bradford, the Christmas tour will take in eight locations across northern England to spread a little festive fun throughout the region.

    And the tour is particularly exciting for fans of Doctor Who as they’ll be able to see the annual Christmas special, featuring Peter Capaldi as the Doctor for the last time, before anyone else.

    This year’s Doctor Who Christmas episode Twice Upon a Time, will see Peter joined by David Bradley who reprises his role as the First Doctor, while Pearl Mackie returns as companion Bill Potts and Mark Gatiss guest stars as the Captain.

    Screenings will take place in St Nicholas Cathedral, Newcastle on Sunday, December 17 at 7pm and 8.30pm.

    And as well as a sneak peek of this hotly-anticipated show, fans will also be able to pose for photos on the BBC’s red carpet and with props from the programmes.

    How to get tickets

    The tickets will be available through a ballot which will be open from Thursday, November 23 for 10 days via the BBC Shows and Tours website: http://www.bbc.co.uk/showsandtours/shows/bbc_north_preview_screening_tour

  7. A Message From The Dean Of Newcastle

    Comments Off on A Message From The Dean Of Newcastle

    The Very Revd Christopher C. Dalliston, Dean of Newcastle

    Dear Friends

    It is with very mixed feelings that I inform you today, that I shall be leaving my position as Dean of Newcastle to become the new Dean of Peterborough in January 2018.

    I am immensely privileged to have served both the Cathedral and the people of Newcastle over the past fourteen years and to have seen so much achieved in that time. The Cathedral is now on the brink of delivering the Common Ground in Sacred Space project to transform not just the building, but its capacity to welcome and engage with many new people and partners. It will set a new course for the Cathedral for the coming years.

    I am sad to let go of all this, but I am very aware that we have in place a talented and committed group of people who have the skills to bring this project to completion over the coming years. It will also be a wrench to leave the North-East. Our children have grown up here and we have made so many friends and have fallen in love with the city and this beautiful part of the world.

    The call to Peterborough has been in many ways unexpected, but insistent, and I am looking forward to what will certainly be a challenging and very exciting new stage of ministry.

    My farewell service at Newcastle Cathedral will be held on Sunday 7 January 2018 at 4.00pm.

    The Very Revd Christopher C. Dalliston, Dean of Newcastle

  10. The Osiligi Maasai Warriors

    Comments Off on The Osiligi Maasai Warriors

    The Osiligi Maasai Warriors arrive in Newcastle this September – a terrific tribal group all the way from southern Kenya.

    Their first major concert in the area will be held at Newcastle Cathedral on Thursday, 14 September where families can enjoy an educational show looking at the intriguing lives of the Maasai.

    The Warriors tour has gained the support of a small UK charity, Osiligi Charity Projects – and, collectively, they have utterly transformed their local community in recent years. A new primary school, medical centre, water station and orphanage has been built with the funds. It’s a great cause and it’s a brilliant, educational journey to take the whole family on in Newcastle this autumn.

    Book tickets now! Tickets from £10 (adults), £8 (concessions) and £5 (children): osiligi-maasai-warriors.eventbrite.co.uk

    Unreserved seating. Doors open 6.30pm. There will be a short half-time interval.
