Most of this tour is at floor level but a section of this fascinating journey into the Cathedral's past will involve climbing around 70 steps via a spiral staircase to the highest balcony level (triforium) to view medieval Arabic carpentry markings.
There is also a wonderful opportunity to photograph the Cathedral from the base of the West Window, looking down the full length of the Nave to the East End.

To mark the 100th Anniversary of The Representation of the People Act 1918 which was passed on 6 February 2018, giving women over the age of 30, who met certain property requirements, the right to vote. Women under the age of 30 had to wait another decade before being enfranchised. Movies Under the Spire will be showing Suffragette.
A drama that tracks the story of the foot soldiers of the early feminist movement, women who were forced underground to pursue a dangerous game of cat and mouse with an increasingly brutal State. These women were not primarily from the genteel educated classes, they were working women who had seen peaceful protest achieve nothing. Radicalised and turning to violence as the only route to change, they were willing to lose everything in their fight for equality - their jobs, their homes, their children and their lives. Maud was one such foot soldier. The story of her fight for dignity is as gripping and visceral as any thriller, it is also heart-breaking and inspirational.
Tickets: £10.00 (to inlude nibbles and a hot drink),
Running time approximately 1hour 46 minutes, doors open 18.00.
Bar facilities will be available on the evening.
