Details

Who were the Northern Saints? Why are they so important to Christianity in the British Isles? Find out the answers in our Northern Saints tour as we celebrate the Lindisfarne Gospels returning to the North East.

Join us to explore the stories of the Northern Saints, their shrines, and the impact they had on Britain, using the art, architecture and history of Newcastle Cathedral. Depictions range from stained glass windows and wood carvings to the stunning Reredos or High Altar screen, added to reflect the building’s newly granted cathedral status in the 1880s.
