The 900th Anniversary of the foundation of the present Cathedral building in 2018 is bringing forward a number of works and changes at the Cathedral to celebrate this anniversary. Works include a new heritage and education centre, Cathedral and community music school. Work to the Precincts will improve access, landscaping and new interpretation and way finding to enhance the space for the enjoyment of residents and visitors to the city.
A lighting scheme would form part of the ‘Peterborough 900 Project’ at Peterborough Cathedral and a bid to the Heritage Lottery Grant Programme towards funding.
