Join us for a journey through the mythical world of Cathedral Creatures with the host of the ‘Fabulous Folklore’ podcast, Icy Sedgwick.

About this event

Recommended for ages 12+.

Why do we have griffins on our misericords? What even is a wyvern, anyway? Folklore blogger Icy Sedgwick will answer these questions while focusing on some of the unusual and striking depictions which you might not expect to find in a cathedral.

This talk forms part of ‘Brilliant Beasts’ season, which takes place across summer 2022 at Newcastle Cathedral. As well as activities and events inspired by creatures hidden throughout the Cathedral, you can come along for the usual array of music, worship, talks and tours. For more information, visit

This talk is hosted on a Pay as You Feel basis (with a minimum of £1 to attend). We would be very grateful if you are able to donate more; a £5 donation is suggested, which will go towards the running of events like this and the continued work of the Cathedral.

Tickets will be available on the door, but we recommend that you book in advance to reserve your space.
