Due to unforeseen circumstances beyond our control at Palace Green, all planned events as part of Balloons InDurham at this location have now be re-arranged to take place at The Sands, as part of the Durham Pride celebrations. Our thanks to the organisers of Durham Pride and the Freeman of the City for inviting Balloons InDurham to this event. Click here for more information.

Events

BEASTS!

The Collections Gallery, Open Treasure, Durham Cathedral

17.03.17 to 10.06.17

An exhibition of the weird and wonderful beasts and monsters which have fascinated people from earliest times. From illustrations of lions and dragons in medieval manuscripts, to early printed books of natural history which feature sea serpents and wyverns alongside images of the rhinoceros or elephant, and the ‘evidence’ presented to prove the existence of such fantastic creatures as griffins and unicorns, this display will capture the imagination! 

Tickets: £2.50 - £7.50 available from the Visitor Desk in the Cathedral, the Open Treasure Welcome Desk, and in advance from www.durhamcathedral.co.uk/open-treasure/book
