Recreate History at St Edmundsbury Cathedral!

Posted on Saturday, 28th May, 2016


Today is LEGO Cathedral Launch Day!


St Edmunsdbury Cathedral is recreating history brick by brick by building Suffolk’s Cathedral and the Mother Church of the Diocese entirely of LEGO!


St Edmundsbury Cathedral is only the fourth Cathedral in the country to have been interpreted in this way, so it really is an historic day!


The aim of the project is to raise £200,000 to fund an essential Youth Outreach Project for the region, along with engaging the local community and recreating history, brick by brick.


You can donate as little as £1 per brick which will enable you to contribute to this fantastic cause not just by donating your money, but also by actually placing your very own brick! So, what are you waiting for?


If you would like to get more hands on there are also volunteering opportunities available:


LEGO Stewards will welcome visitors and take donations for bricks that are to be added to the model.


LEGO Builders will welcome visitors welcome visitors, inform them about the project and follow the building plan to assist visitors in placing their bricks in the correct position.


When asked about the project, the Very Reverend Dr Frances Ward said, “We are passionate at St Edmundsbury Cathedral about creating a high quality experience of volunteering for all ages. Our new Lego Cathedral gives volunteers a chance to get involved with a tremendous project which will give those involved the chance to gain core skills and experience with a great buzz. Be assured of a real welcome if you think this might be for you.”


Don’t miss this fantastic day at the St Edmundsbury Cathedral. Doors open at 10:30am and entry is free! There will be LEGO activities and money prizes, LEGO trail, LEGO cake decorating, LEGO cardboard modelling, and for the ‘big kids’ out there, a beer and a burger for £5!
