Heritage At Home

Whilst many of our heritage attractions across the district are closed, now is the time to experience some of their online content and take part in some heritage activities at home.

  • Prayers and services are live streamed from the inside the historic Grade 1 listed building.  Go to www.lancasterpriory.org for full details and links.

 

  • Lancaster Priory Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/lancasterpriorymusic)  is currently running a popular Lockdown Showcase.  Supporters of the Tower Appeal are sending videos, audios and photos of lockdown activities such as poetry writing, instrumental and singing pieces, sculptures, artwork etc.  Anyone from the City and surrounding area who is fond of the Priory Clock Tower and who wishes to keep it as part of the iconic cityscape, is welcome to join in.  Send your item to steph@lancasterpriory.org.
