Carlisle Cathedral - ‘City of Lights’
An exciting line-up of events, displays and installations is being planned for the first ever ‘City of Lights’ project in Carlisle.
This will take place between Wednesday 12th February and Saturday 15th February.
The centre-piece of the City of Lights event will be a stunning visual spectacle in Carlisle Cathedral. The Cathedral will host ‘The Great Exhibition – SPACE: God, the Universe and Everything,’ inspired by the 1969 Moon landings. Created by the award-winning Luxmuralis artistic collaboration, it will take people on a walking journey through the Cathedral, revealing the universe, galaxies, space, creation, and light through a variety of sound and light installations that will transform the internal space of the Cathedral.
Sunday 1st March in Primrose Hall, Gaitsgill at 12.30 pm.
An opportunity to get together with others in our community. Come and enjoy a lovely meal and a chat! Always on the first Sunday in the month. Everyone welcome!

People who have booked a break for the early May bank holiday 2020 may be in for a shock, because 30 million diaries and calendars have printed the wrong date.
The Times reports that the government moved the date from Monday the 4th May Friday the 8th May, to coincide with the 75th anniversary of VE Day - but the change was announced after the diaries and calendars were printed. Oops!
