Newcastle Cathedral Lantern Tower - Film Screening & Goodie Bag Giveaway - 19th, 25th & 26th March 2022

19 March 2022, 25–26 March 2022

To coincide with National Lottery Open Week, Newcastle Cathedral will be screening a short film about the history and architecture of its iconic Lantern Tower. This will be shown on a loop between 10am and 1pm on Saturday 19 March and Saturday 26 March, and between 10am and 3pm on Friday 25 March.

The 15-minute film is presented by local tour guide Alex Iles and features stunning drone and aerial footage filmed by Newcastle-based film company Media Borne.

For nearly 600 years, the Lantern Tower has illuminated Newcastle’s skyline, having originally been a navigation point for ships sailing up the River Tyne.

Newcastle Cathedral reopened in August 2021 following a major redevelopment project, made possible with support from The National Lottery Heritage Fund. This work saw the nave completely transformed, with flexible seating and new heritage interpretation telling the Cathedral’s story.

On Saturday 19, Friday 25 and Saturday 26 March, any person who presents a National Lottery ticket or scratch card will also be able to claim a Newcastle Cathedral ‘goodie bag’, containing souvenirs of their visit. Terms and conditions apply.
