Local folk are invited to join Worcester Cathedral this Saturday, 22 October, from 10am - 4pm, for a Big Green Eco Family Fair in the Cloister, as part of its Living Gently on the Earth series.

The latest of which is the Big Green Eco Fair, which includes family friendly craft and nature activities, green products for sale, information and advice for sustainable living, campfire story time and the local orchard group apple press. Bring your own apples and containers for the juice. Featuring Bramblewood Forest School, Bike Worcester, Greenpeace, Worcestershire Wildlife Trust, The Woodland Trust, Act On Energy, Transition Worcester and more...

There will also be a drumming performance and workshop by Drumlove for all ages when the fair is officially opened by Robin Walker, MP, at 11am. All are warmly welcome and there’s no need to book, so please do pop along and join an action-packed day of eco-friendly fun! 

Worcester Cathedral has been a place of Christian worship and prayer for fourteen centuries; the present building dates back to 1084 and is dedicated to Christ and the Blessed Virgin Mary. Described as possibly the most interesting of all England's cathedrals, especially architecturally, it was founded in 680.

Saint Oswald then built another cathedral in 983, and established a monastery attached to it. Saint Wulfstan began the present building in 1084 replacing the earlier cathedrals. The Cathedral's attractions include King John's Tomb, Prince Arthur's Chantry, the early 12th Century Chapter House, St Wulfstan's Crypt, medieval cloisters, magnificent Victorian stained glass and spectacular views from the top of the Cathedral tower.
