Cathedrals at Night – Saturday 14 May

Cathedral Isle of Man invites you to join with thousands across Europe and experience a Cathedral at Night on Saturday 14 May.

We would like those of all ages to immerse themselves in the culture and spirituality of our beautiful building and enjoy a taste of cathedral life for free.

Here on the Island we are starting early so that children can join in activities and enjoy a baked potato from 16.30.  Our timetable is:

  • Activities for children from 16:30
  • Baked potatoes with fillings (donations welcome)
  • Tea, coffee and squash
  • An opportunity to explore the building and gardens, and to reflect in quietness
  • Short Service of Light with the Choristers at 17:30
  • Stardust – a talk by Howard Parkin at 19:30
  • Dynamic music and light performances by Cameron Skidmore at: 19:00, 20:45 and 21:45
  • Poetry on the theme of light and darkness, chaos and peace – bring your own poem, or one you appreciate (21:15). Both the Bard and the Youth Bard are preparing poems for us.
  • The evening ends with a short candle-lit service at 22:00
  • Doors close at 22:30
