Chester Cathedral



Chester Cathedral In Lego
Explore cathedral life in miniature and learn all about our 1000 year history as we retell our story, LEGO brick by brick, from the very beginning. The Chester Cathedral in Lego building project will take 350000 individual Lego pieces and transform them into an accurate scale model of the cathedral that will reach almost 4m in length and 2m in height. Members of the public will be able to purchase their own small piece of history in the form of a Lego brick to be included in the model and will be encouraged to learn all about the cathedral’s 1000 year history as the multi-layered story of the building through the ages is retold, brick by brick, from the very beginning. Volunteer bricklayers will work every day of the week to build the model from the foundations up and it is estimated that the project will take up to four years to complete.

Chester Philharmonic's November Concert
📅 Saturday 16 November 2019
7.30pm
Arnold; Overture Peterloo, Vaughan Williams; Tuba Concerto ( Soloist Les Neish) Berlioz; Symphonie Fantastique; Conductor Marco Bellasi:

It is 200 years since the Peterloo Massacre when 18 protesters were slaughtered and over 400 were injured by a cavalry charge of the Manchester and Salford Yeomanry. Arnold’s overture commemorates the event in music whilst Berlioz’ Symphonie Fantastique is the first in our theme for the season of “Fable and Fantasy”.

Ralph Vaughan Williams tuba concerto, composed in 1954, will be heard this evening performed by international artist Les Neish. Les has toured the world performing in over 60 countries and is Tuba Tutor at the RNCM, Salford University and Birmingham Conservatoire

Berlioz Symphonie Fantastique like the Peterloo Overture depicts a story. “The Artist” (Berlioz himself) falls in love but is unable to confess his love to the object of his desire. Everywhere he looks he sees visions of his loved one. He is an opium addict and suffers from hallucinations which are depicted in the March to the Scaffold and Witches Dance. As Bernstein said, "Berlioz tells it like it is. You take a trip, you wind up screaming at your own funeral”.
Tickets £18 Front Nave; £13 Rear Nave and West Steps; £6 Students.
