Heritage Week 2020 at St Patrick’s Cathedral – Online and Physical Events
Heritage Week 2020 will be a bit different at St Patrick's Cathedral, Dublin. As always the cathedral is hosting a wonderful series of events but this year many of their programmes have moved online. Please note that any events that take place in the cathedral will adhere to regulations designed to ensure visitor safety. All who wish to attend will be asked to pre-book and also to wear a face mask. These events have restricted capacities so please let staff know if you can't attend so that that your ticket can be released to someone else.
Restoring the Roof video (20 August) (online and in Cathedral)
For Heritage Week 2020 St Patrick's has commissioned a new video which explores the cathedral's roof works project. This new content includes drone footage and interviews with the craftspeople involved and will give an incredible insight into this massive project. Four short videos will be released throughout Heritage Week across the cathedral’s social media channels and a screening will be held in the cathedral on Thursday 20 August at 4.30pm. This screening will provide a platform to share the learnings from this enormous project and help inform the restoration of built heritage in the future.
