Newcastle Cathedral’s heritage project, Common Ground in Sacred Space, will see the Cathedral re-established as a community hub and a key tourist attraction in Newcastle city centre.

The project hopes to revive and transform the historic fabric of the unique and beautiful building and its churchyard, to revitalise the medieval church’s civic role throughout the centuries as the centre of city life for locals, families, tourists and pilgrims alike.

Explaining the importance of the award, the Dean of Newcastle, the Very Reverend Geoff Miller said: “We are thrilled to have received this once-in-a-lifetime support. We are delighted that the National Lottery Heritage Fund has put their trust in us and provided a magnificent resource to enable us to deliver a sustainable future for Newcastle Cathedral.

“We have a passionate and highly committed team who are really excited to be delivering such a big project in the Cathedral’s history. After years of careful planning, we are confident that our project will embrace and meet the needs of the people of Newcastle and the region, including the vulnerable, residents, and tourists, by making sacred space common ground.”

Physical work will begin in early 2020 with the launch of the redeveloped Cathedral and grounds at Easter 2021.
