St Edmundsbury Cathedral set for family fun this summer

More news, no ads


The Learning Hub at St Edmundsbury Cathedral, in Bury St Edmunds, is offering two climate and conservation family fun days.

On Wednesday, July 28, visitors can help build a giant earth globe, which will be used for the Cathedral’s service on Climate and on Wednesday, August 4, there will be trails and craft activities themed on our natural world.

“Cathedrals are great spaces for creativity, and we hope that our young visitors will be inspired by the beautiful surroundings,” said Sarah Friswell, visitor experience manager at the cathedral.

“We are pleased to be able to offer these family fun days again. They have always been a popular part of our programme.”

Both two-hour sessions are from 10 am, with no pre-booking required, but all children must be accompanied by an adult.

Admission is free but a donation to the cathedral is appreciated.

Also throughout the summer, families can enjoy helping to add bricks to the site’s LEGO model.

The model of the cathedral, which started in May 2016, is near the halfway stage with more than 86,000 bricks already added.

By donating £1, another brick can be added and volunteers, who are on duty from Monday to Saturday 10.30am to 12.30pm and Sundays from 12.30pm to 2.30pm, will be on hand to help.
