Helter skelter construction on 6 & 7 August

02 August 2019
Construction of the helter skelter for the Cathedral’s Seeing It Differently project is due to take place on Tuesday 6 August and Wednesday 7 August. As a result, there will be some disruption in the west end of the Nave throughout both days.

The 50ft helter skelter is the centrepiece of the Seeing It Differently project which will run from 8 to 18 August and aims to give people the chance to experience the Cathedral in an entirely new way and open up conversations about faith.

Visitors climbing up to have a go on the ride will be treated to unique views of the Cathedral and its famous medieval roof bosses before enjoying a helter skelter ride like no other!

There will also be a number of other Other Seeing It Differently installations to explore, including the chance to lie down and look up at the Cathedral’s incredible ceiling and roof bosses, take part in a trust trail in the Cloisters, and sit inside a Bible box and be completely surrounded by the word of God.

The helter skelter will be open to the public from the afternoon of Thursday 8 August and a ride will cost £2 per person. All the other Seeing It Differently installations are free.

General opening times for Seeing It Differently will be 10am-5pm Monday to Saturday and 12 noon-3pm on Sundays.
