Two new exhibitions open in June at York Minster. Visitors will be able to see and hear the Grand Organ following its once in a century refurbishment and explore the cathedral’s next major conservation project, the medieval St Cuthbert Window.

A photography exhibition exploring the craft skills which were applied to the £2m refurbishment project of the Grand Organ will run from 18 June – 18 July and on Saturday 12 June a new exhibition about the medieval St Cuthbert Window, which tells the story of the life and miracles of one of Northern England’s most significant saints, will open at the cathedral.  It runs until January 2022.

The Dean of York, Jonathan Frost, said: “We’re delighted to be reopening and look forward to welcoming people back to the Minster. We have developed a programme of exhibitions and activities for the summer which will enable visitors and pilgrims to explore the layers of history held in the cathedral’s magnificent architecture, which has the Christian story at its heart.”
