In Chichester Cathedral's North Transept until 20th November 2014

Free Entry.  All are welcome.

The pupils of Lavant CE Primary School are showing their creative talents at Chichester Cathedral this month.  Earlier this year - following a whole school visit to the Cathedral - the children took a break from their normal curriculum, to focus on art projects inspired by  their visit to the Cathedral.  These varied artworks, created by the children, are now on display in the North Transept of the Cathedral until 20th November.

The artworks include a beautiful set of stained 'glass' panels, some stone effect gargoyles, textile wall hangings and a series of 3D pieces based on the Cathedral's famous Chichester reliefs.  In addition, the display will also feature a spoof silent movie made by the pupils  documenting the infamous collapse of the Cathedral's spire in 1861.  "We are immensely proud of the children's achievements and are delighted that they have gained a real sense of connection with the Cathedral," said School Art Co-ordinator Rebecca Holden.  "It is so very special to be able to see the pupils' inspired and thoughtful work within the context of the Cathedral itself,"  enthused Victoria Rowlands, School Friends' Co-ordinator. 

Lavant CE Primary School has been a long standing member of the School Friends of Chichester Cathedral.  All schools are welcome to join and members benefit from dedicated events, teaching resources and discounted rates for workshops and guided tours.  For further details please contact Vicky Rowlands, School Friends Co-ordinator, on 01243 812497 or
