From 30 May

Based on the num­ber 1 New York Times best­selling book of the same name, Heaven Is For Real brings to UK cin­e­mas the true story that has in­spired mil­lions across the globe – that of a lit­tle boy’s ex­tra­or­di­nary, life-chang­ing ex­pe­ri­ence, and his fa­ther’s search for the courage and con­vic­tion to share his son’s dis­cov­ery with the world. Academy Award® nom­i­nee and Emmy® Award­win­ner Greg Kin­n­ear ( As Good As It Gets, Lit­tle Miss Sun­shine) stars as Todd Burpo, a small-town busi­ness­man, vol­un­teer fire­fighter and pas­tor strug­gling to make ends meet in a tough year for his fam­ily.

8 June

Ac­claimed Bri­tish artist Ni­cholas Pope’s dra­matic work The Apos­tles Speak­ing in Tongues Lit By Their Own Lamps has just been in­stalled at Sal­is­bury Cathe­dral for Pen­te­cost and can be seen there ev­ery day un­til Mon­day 4 Au­gust. First shown at Tate Bri­tain in 1996-97, The Apos­tles Speak­ing in Tongues Lit By Their Own Lamps is a group­ing of 33 ter­ra­cotta fig­ures which rep­re­sent a dra­matic re-en­act­ment of the events nar­rated in the New Tes­ta­ment when the Holy Spirit came amongst the Apos­tles’ in the ‘form of cloven fire’ at Pen­te­cost, which this year falls on Sun­day 8 June. The Apos­tles’ lamps will be lit daily. From Mon­days to Satur­day they will be lit from 7am – 8am, 11am – 12 noon and 3pm – 4pm, and on Sun­days from 12noon – 2pm. From Tues­day 10 June on­wards vis­i­tors will be able to hear a record­ing of ac­tress Har­riet Wal­ter read­ing the bi­ble story nar­rat­ing the events of Pen­te­cost from Acts II which will be broad­cast when­ever the lamps are alight.
