Mini LEGO model returns to Durham Cathedral Shop

02/09/2015

Building on last year’s success, Durham Cathedral will be relaunching the sale of the mini Durham Cathedral in LEGO.
 
This limited edition model will be on sale in the Cathedral Shop from Friday 4 September. It will be sold alongside LEGO postcards, mugs and T-shirts which have been on sale since last year.
 
This year’s mini Durham Cathedral in LEGO will cost £55 and features the new addition of the Cloister.
 
Vanessa Ward, Business Support Manager at Durham Cathedral, said: “We are very excited to be receiving the next Mini Model of the Cathedral this time including the Cloister. There is no doubt this is a very collectable model which will appeal to young and not quite so young alike. LEGO knows no age boundaries!”
 
Durham Cathedral in LEGO is a fundraising project that is set to raise £350,000 towards the public appeal for this current phase of Open Treasure. Costing £10 million,  Open Treasure will transform some of the Cathedral’s most historic spaces, creating an exhibition route that will include the Monks’ Dormitory and finish in the Great Kitchen, where the treasures of St Cuthbert will be displayed, alongside other Cathedral treasures and visiting exhibitions.
 
The Cathedral’s range of LEGO merchandise is on sale in the Cathedral Shop. Orders can be placed by contacting the Cathedral Shop on 0191 386 8669 or theshop@durhamcathedral.co.uk
