Pugin and Plainchant. Visit St Mary’s Cathedral, built by AWN Pugin, designer of the interior of the Houses of Parliament. Marvel at our needle spire, finely-carved altars, Victorian and contemporary stained glass, amazing neo-Gothic tiled floor and superb new organ.
Find your voice, learning how to read and sing mediaeval chant; make your mark designing a tile or enjoying contemplative colouring, using the magnificent Pugin tiles as inspiration; add your artwork to a collage; decorate a candle, creating a living light installation.
Tiles and candles at 7, 8, 9 and 10pm. Gregorian chant at 7.30, 8.30, 9.30 and 10.30pm. Organ music at intervals during the evening.
