Monks, Manuscripts and Mayhem

Monday 12 February 2024, 11am-3pm

Visitors of all ages are welcome to join us for some fun filled family Half Term activities where our friendly trainee Monk Novice Norman returns. He's inviting you to come and learn about the world of the monks who used to live here!

All are invited to discover more about the fascinating studies the monks undertook as part of their daily lives. There will be a number of activities on offer, including the chance to design your own illuminated letter, dress up as a monk, and even peek inside our medieval Library...

It is free to take part, but we are grateful for donations to the Cathedral, and no booking is required.
