175th Anniversary of St Mary's


On Saturday 18 May we were open for the Late Shows where visitors spent time experiencing the beauty and history of the Cathedral. The evening was led by the extremely well informed Newcastle City Guides in the roles of Bishop Riddell, Fr Worswick, members of the Dunn Family and a soldier from the Tyneside Irish Brigade along with many others. It was a very memorable evening when visitors were also shown around the organ gallery and watched a ‘timeline’ slideshow of the Cathedral. The evening was very well attended and very much enjoyed by all those who came to visit. We extend our sincere thanks and appreciation to the city guides and to our own committed volunteers who worked hard to make the evening a success.
