In the Feretory, St Cuthbert's shrine and the sacred heart of the Cathedral, you'll find this curious mutilated statue. What you might not know is that this fifteenth century statue depicts St Cuthbert holding the head of St Oswald; the seventh-century Northumbrian king's head is buried with St Cuthbert in Durham Cathedral. ⠀

Our favourite shots 📸 from tonight’s @neechamber annual dinner. We’re over the moon to say that tonight we raised a grand total of £75,840 towards our #foundation2020 campaign to maintain our buildings for generations to come. #neechamberevents #cathedral #durhamcathedral #cathedralphotography #durham #northeast

Tonight's evensong is a moment of calm, before 600 guests fill the cloister and Cathedral for the North East Chamber of Commerce's Annual Dinner. We're thankful that the funds raised from this event will benefit the Cathedral's #Foundation2020 fund, to maintain this ancient and living church.

A troupe of talented table-spinners continue preparations for Thursday’s @neechamber annual dinner. Thanks to Franks Factory Carpets for their fantastic work carpeting the Cathedral! #neechamberevents #annualdinner #duhamcathedral #durham #durhamcity #event #dinner #northeastbusiness
