Metropolitan Cathedral Golden Jubilee: Get Involved! Posted on Thursday 26 January 2017


There are lots of ways you can get involved in the Cathedral’s Jubilee Celebrations this year. Along with attending our events, there are a number of exciting projects planned which will tell the story of the Cathedral and of the people whose lives it has shaped over the past 50 years.

We have listed below three specific projects and would love to hear from people of all ages, backgrounds and faiths who have their own stories to tell.

What does the Cathedral mean to you?
Do you have personal story about how the Cathedral has made a difference in your life? Or would you like to a share a few words about what the Cathedral means to you? If so we would love to hear from you.
Please send us an email, to and include in the subject line “My Cathedral”.

‘Voices of the Met Cathedral’ project
As part of our Jubilee celebrations, arts and heritage specialists Metro-Boulot-Dodo will be producing a very exciting oral-archiving project that will chart the history of the Cathedral. They are looking to recruit volunteers of all ages to become part of a research group. The research group will be treated to range of lectures and workshops on the Cathedral’s heritage and will then go on to conduct interviews with the general public to create their own oral archives. If you have a passion for local history and heritage, or would like to learn new skills and meet new friends, this will be a fantastic opportunity.
Contact for more info.

We want to hear your memories
Do you remember the Cathedral being built? Did you attend the opening ceremony or were you one of thousands who have attended special events throughout the Cathedral’s history? Or do you have other memories or photographs of the Cathedral that you would like to share with us? If so, we would love to hear from you too.
