Finishing touches

It's the final day of preparations for the Cathedral's 150th anniversary exhibition, which opens tomorrow at Lancaster City Museum.

All around the museum the finishing touches are being put on the exhibits, which have been arriving there all week.

Display cases and text panels tell the story of Lancaster's Catholic history. This afternoon the designers, museum management, cleaners and Cathedral staff were all on site as the final pieces were put into place.

The Cathedral has provided most of the content for the exhibition (the objects on display, the texts and images for wall panels, etc) and the museum service has provided the space, the publicity and the design skills.

Hopefully it will be a winning combination! The blog will feature much more on the exhibition over the coming days and weeks, but in the meantime do try to call in and see it for yourself. It opens tomorrow morning and runs until 21st November, and is open daily Monday-Saturday, 10am-5pm. Admission is free.
