Look­ing up at the spec­tac­u­lar ceil­ing of Norwich Cathe­dral

Norwich Cathe­dral’s ma­jes­tic spire ris­ing high above the fine city is a fa­mil­iar sight, but have you ever taken the time to look in­side and dis­cover the sto­ries that dec­o­rate its amaz­ing vaulted ceil­ing? More than 1,000 me­dieval roof bosses adorn the an­cient ar­chi­tec­ture, each one telling a story from the Bible, and this sum­mer an un­usual pro­ject will be us­ing all the fun of the fair to give peo­ple the chance to get closer to these stun­ning works of art. See­ing it Dif­fer­ently will see a 50ft high hel­ter-skel­ter in­stalled in the cathe­dral’s nave in Au­gust.

The fair­ground ride will take vis­i­tors on a unique jour­ney of dis­cov­ery and will al­low peo­ple to ex­pe­ri­ence the cen­turies-old build­ing in an en­tirely new way. De­tails soon at cathe­dral.org.uk
