Join us for a day of two tours to both cathedrals in Liverpool – the Anglican and the Roman Catholic –  with Art+Christianity Director, Laura Moffatt. Both cathedrals are truly outstanding exemplars of 20th- and 21st-century art commissioning, from artists such as Elisabeth Frink, Ceri Richards, John Piper and Patrick Reytiens, Tracey Emin, Christopher LeBrun and Susannah Heron.

This tour is one of a series of tours taking place during the year in different cathedrals. We’re calling the series ‘Ecclesiart in Cathedrals’ as the tours are a direct result of many years’ work on a part of the A+C website called Ecclesiart – an online resources that spotlights over 100 modern and contemporary works of art in churches and cathedrals.

Led by Laura Moffatt – a leading expert in art in places of worship – these tours are a ‘director’s pick’ of unusual and often overlooked works of art in cathedrals. Most tours in cathedral focus on their architecture and on historic artefacts, but cathedrals are living buildings and the contributions of artists of recent generations comprise a treasure trove of delights.
