Bringing cathedral to life

Have your say

THE North East Centre for Lifelong Learning (NECLL) at the University of Sunderland is helping to bring the stories behind a city cathedral’s many monuments to life with a season of talks and workshops.

The Cathedral Church of St Nicholas, in Newcastle has received a grant of £250,000 from the Heritage Lottery Fund to help open up the hidden history of the building with a project called Illuminating Stories.

The University of Sunderland’s NECLL will promote 
the project’s educational activities through its Explore programme, which will run in the cathedral from today until November 24.
