BRADFORD Cathedral will turn into a cinema for a screening during a packed day of activities.

The Stott Hill site will be holding its slot in the ‘Widescreen in the Community’ strand of the annual ‘Widescreen Weekend’ held by the National Science & Media Museum.

To fit in with their theme of ‘Victorians and the Age of Industry’, the Aardman classic ‘The Pirates! In an Adventure With Scientists’ will be shown at 2.30pm on Saturday, October 15. The film features Queen Victoria and Charles Darwin. Tickets are just £3 for adults and £1 for children.

There is also a free tour before and after the film, where Maggie Myers, the cathedral’s director of visitors, will be taking people around the venue.

The cathedral will open once again from 7pm on October 15 to mark ‘Cathedrals at Night’, a national event that has been held at many cathedrals across the country and now comes to Bradford.

The evening begins with a gentle 30-minute organ recital, with the night will be rounded off from 9pm with a performance from the Bradford Cathedral Choir.
