Join two members of the reinstatement project team to discover the story of the Cathedral, starting from when it was first conceived. 

In 1848 the Canterbury Association had a clear vision of wanting to establish a Church of England settlement in Canterbury and the Cathedral was to be the physical and symbolic heart of the city.

We will 'tour' the Cathedral project hoardings (information panels) and update you on what is happening in the reinstatement project. 

You will also be able to see or touch some fascinating artefacts like the retrieved stained glass from the rose window, a piece of the Bishop's Cathedra, bell workings, stone and wood.
