Revealing York Minster
York Minster's newest attraction, Revealing York Minster in the Undercroft, invites visitors to take a 2000 year heroic, historic and human journey through a series of interactive underground chambers. Built in a space created in emergency excavations during the 1970s, the attraction explores the hidden history of the cathedral's site, from the remains of Roman barracks to the foundations of the Norman Minster. Featuring artefacts never before on public display, visitors can see, touch and hear 2000 years of history.
Northern Lights | York Minster
24 - 31 October 2019
See York Minster in a new light this autumn as the awe-inspiring Northern Lights returns. The sound and light installation will transform the Minster’s cavernous Nave with images and audio inspired by the medieval Minster’s stained glass and stone.
Visitors will have the chance to explore the empty Nave after dark before the installation illuminates the space, spanning the full length of the ceiling and West End and surrounding the listener with soundscapes and music.
Designed by renowned projectionist Ross Ashton and sound artist Karen Monid, and featuring recordings from the York Minster Choir, the events have been organised to raise funds to protect the cathedral’s medieval stained glass. yorkminster.org
