Project Activities

During the life of the People's Cathedral Project, 96 events were delivered ranging from Coffee Concerts to Stargazing. The events sought to engage with new and existing audience to deepen and widen our engagement with the local community. The events also sough to change people's perceptions of the Cathedral and encourage them to visit for different reasons.
