Arts program at the Cathedral...

St Edmundsbury Cathedral launches arts programme

 
St Edmundsbury Cathedral, Bury St Edmunds, launches its arts programme on Friday 21 June against the backdrop of a major art exhibition. A new leaflet detailing all the events in the next 6 months will be available from the Cathedral and other outlets.

The arts programme includes a visit from Paul Kerensa, a comedian, whose one-man show is called ‘And a Comedian Walked into a Church’. Paul Kerensa has been on the writing teams for Miranda and Not Going Out. As a stand-up comedian he tours the country, has won ITV1’s Take The Mike Award, and was a finalist in the BBC New Comedy Awards and the Daily Telegraph Open Mic Awards.

Other highlights include the Britten Festival in November linked to the centenary of Benjamin Britten’s birth. As part of the weekend’s programme, Sue Lawley will give the commentary at a Song recital entitled Britten, the Music with musicians John Graham-Hall (tenor) and Peter Davis (piano).

Sharron Stowe, Cathedral Arts Co-ordinator, comments, ‘Through this exciting programme we hope to introduce new people to the Cathedral as an arts venue.’

This week also sees the Cathedral transformed by a major art exhibition, Respect, created by Suffolk school children. The exhibition is open to the public during the normal opening times of the Cathedral. Admission is free.
