One in every 285 children gets cancer before the age of 20, and it is also the most common medical cause of death in children and young people in the UK.

When you visit the Cathedral it is free to all visitors so to earn your Case File stamp here all you need to do is find one of the Animal Agents lurking in the Cathedral. These may be drawings of characters in the books you read or they may be the Cathedral’s own animals (look closely at the stained glass, stone and wood carving!) any animal you spot qualifies you to get your Case File stamped by our shop or welcome team.

16:00Reformation Lecture: 'The Coming of the English Reformation'4.00pm - Professor Ronald Hutton - 'The Coming of the English Reformation'

Ronald Hutton is Professor of History in the University of Bristol and Associate Dean of its Faculty of Arts, and a Fellow of the Royal Historical Society, the Society of Antiquaries, the Learned Society of Wales, and the British Academy. He is the historian on the board of trustees which runs English Heritage, and chair of the Blue Plaques panel which awards commemorative plaques to historic buildings. He has published fifteen books and seventy-five essays on a wide range of subjects including British history between 1400 and 1700, ancient and modern paganism in Britain, the British ritual year, and Siberian shamanism.
17:30Evening Prayer
18:00Reformation Lecture: ‘No better than asses and sheepProfessor James Clark - ‘No better than Asses and Sheep: Remembering the Reformation attack on the monasteries’

James Clark is Professor of History at the University of Exeter. He has published widely on the history of England’s medieval monasteries and their fortunes at the Reformation and is a frequent media contributor on these themes. He was programme consultant for BBC TV’s Tudor Monastery Farm (2013). He is currently completing a major new study of the Dissolution of the Monasteries for Yale University Press.
20:00Reformation Lecture: Three Choirs and a ReformationDr Richard Fisher - Three Choirs and a Reformation: How the Abbey became a Cathedral at Gloucester

Richard Fisher is a final-year PhD student at the University of Bristol, supervised by Dr Beth Williamson and Professor James Clark. His research examines the part played by English cathedrals in the early Tudor Reformation, from a comparison of those found at Hereford, Worcester and Gloucester. Despite the traditional view of the English Reformation as Henry VIII’s top-down salvation of a floundering national church having being revised in the recent past by evidence from regional and parochial studies which demonstrate the strength of ‘traditional’ Catholicism, the role of the cathedrals in this period has been largely neglected. Perhaps this is because these awe-inspiring buildings (and the institutions which function within them) are symbolic of both the reformed Church of England and the Catholic religion which preceded it. Richard’s interest in cathedrals began as a boy, singing in them in London. This continued as an undergraduate at Bristol, where his quest to visit all the medieval cathedral buildings took off. A trip to Carlisle, the last medieval cathedral to be established, still awaits!

Understandably, childhood cancer is something that most parents do not want to think about. Thankfully, it is uncommon, but not as rare as you may think. One in every 285 children gets cancer before the age of 20, and it is also the most common medical cause of death in children and young people in the UK.

The Loud Crowd is an amalgamation of four Gloucestershire community choirs run by Liz Martin.

If you sing, you share your heart around, if you sing you give your soul a sound, if you sing you keep your feet on the ground and if you sing - YOU FLY.

It’s for anyone who likes singing - even those who normally only dare to sing in the shower or alone in the car. It’s very relaxed and friendly, open to all, with no audition, no experience necessary and no need to be able to read music as everything is taught by ear. All in delicious harmony and with a big emphasis on feeling good and having fun.
