Younger visitors have plenty to look forward to. "Eggsplore Easter" is an Easter Trail that will have children exploring this fantastic building in search of the answer to "What happened on the very first Easter Day?" Bring your friends and family too for a fun day out!

Love art and architecture? Then make sure you book a space on our amazing 4 day Relief Stone Carving Course. Held over two weekends, local artist and sculptor Ann-Margreth Bohl will lead this four day course that gives participants the opportunity to learn techniques to create a relief carving. Participants will learn about carving and masonry on bespoke Cathedral tours and carve their own relief piece, inspired by designs in the Cathedral Crypt.
