What's On

There But Not There

Tuesday 25 September to Tuesday 13 November

Cathedral Church

Durham Cathedral is proud to take part in the nationwide 'There But Not There' installation project. The clear shadows of figures, commemorating those who never returned from fighting in the First World War, are powerful aids to reflection and remembrance as we commemorate the centenary of the Armistice. This installation in the Cathedral has been made possible through a generous grant from the Armed Forces Covenant Trust.


There is no charge to view this installation.

The 10 figures will be displayed over the 2018 Remembrance period. Not only does this installation act as a tangible means of commemoration to those who died in WWI, including alumni and staff members of The Chorister School, but it also compliments Open Treasure's temporary exhibition 'Armistice: Living with the Peace', which runs from Tuesday 25 September 2018 to Saturday 2 February 2019.

More information about the nationwide project is available on There But Not There's website


There are several events, services, exhibitions and concerts taking place at the Cathedral this Autumn to remember the Armistice and those who serve today. Click here to see a full list of Remembrance events
