Event description

Description

The Osiligi Maasai Warriors, a performing tribal group from southern Kenya, are set to visit Newcastle Cathedral on Thursday, September 14. The group has toured north east schools and churches with great success in recent years but this will be their first major city concert in the area.

The evening is great family entertainment - and educational, as the show also looks at the lives of the Maasai and the group does a Q and A session with the audience.

The Warriors tour has also gained the support of a small UK charity – Osiligi Charity Projects – and, collectively, they have utterly transformed their local community in the last seven years. A new primary school has been built for 200 sponsored children; there is a new medical centre and orphanage; and a solar powered water station which serves the wider community.

Unreserved seating. Doors open 6.30pm. There will be a short half-time interval.


FAQs

Are there ID or minimum age requirements to enter the event?

Children under the age of 16 must be accompanied by an adult.

What are my transport/parking options for getting to and from the event?

Newcastle Cathedral is within easy reach of many public transport links:

RAILWAY
Newcastle Central Train Station is just five minutes' walk from Newcastle Cathedral. When leaving Central Station, turn right along Neville Street. You will pass by the monument to George Stephenson, father of Robert Stephenson, as well as The Literary and Philosophical Society and the North of England Institute of Mining and Mechanical Engineers. Then follow Collingwood Street to bring you out at Newcastle Cathedral.

CAR
The nearest major public car park can be found on Dean Street. Walk out of the car park, cross straight over Dean Street and almost directly in front of you is a small stairway that brings you up into Amen Corner, at the back of the Cathedral. Follow the path left or right to approach the front entrance to the Cathedral. There are numerous other parking facilities, including multi-storey facilities and 48 surface car parks operated by Newcastle City Council. The Quayside's multi-storey car park is approximately 12 minutes’ walk away and can hold up to 500 vehicles.

PUBLIC TRANSPORT
The Nexus operated Tyne and Wear Metro service operates into Newcastle city centre - with several stations in close proximity to Newcastle Cathedral. The nearest stations are Monument Station (at the top of the Grade I-listed Grey Street) and Central Station, both less than ten minutes' walk away. If travelling from the Airport via Regent Centre, you will have to alight at Haymarket and change platforms.
The Q1 QuayLink bus service runs to the bottom of the Side, the medieval Quayside street which leads up to the Cathedral. Public buses run outside of the Cathedral into Gateshead and towards Durham and Chester-le-Street once every 15 minutes (weekdays and Saturdays).

ON FOOT
From the city centre: Head down Grey Street, passing by the Theatre Royal. Turn right along Mosley Street, which will bring you out to the north facade of Newcastle Cathedral.
From Central Station: As you leave Central Station, turn right along Neville Street. Following Collingwood Street will bring you to Newcastle Cathedral.
From the Quayside: Alight the Side - the main medieval route into Newcastle. Alternatively, you can take Dog Leap Stairs. They're steep but rise straight up to the Cathedral. The Castle Stairs are another route. These can be found on the Quayside, across the road from the Swing Bridge. Again, this is steep but will bring you to the Castle Keep. Keep forward along St Nicholas Street to approach the Cathedral on your right.

What can I bring into the event?

With the exception of Guide Dogs, no dogs are allowed in Newcastle Cathedral.
No photography allowed.

How can I contact the organiser with any questions?
