The Big Picture:
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
