Christmas at the Cathedral returns…. 
A sparkling night of local celebrity appearances, music, song and a little bit of comedy is in store this festive season with the return of the Christmas at the Cathedral. 

This hugely popular show, which raises money for The Sir Bobby Robson Foundation and is proudly sponsored by Orbis Support, will take place at Newcastle Cathedral and once again promises to surprise audiences with a line-up of celebrity performers whose identities are always kept under wraps until the big night. 

Those who have bagged tickets in the past have watched performances by the likes of Stephen Tompkinson, Tim Healy, Melanie Hill, Denise Welch, Jimmy Nail and Maximo Park’s Paul Smith.  Others have included Billy Mitchell, Chelsea Halfpenny, Charlie Hardwick, Rachel Unthank, Steffen Peddie and Viktoria Kay in typically fast-and-furious shows that switch between comedy highs and readings, some with a ‘football theme’ plus singalongs and traditional carols. 

The very beautiful Newcastle Cathedral will be transformed, giving a ‘theatre like’ feeling, with top quality lighting, sound, and huge TV screens on either side of the staging. 

This will be the sixth year that the concert has raised money for The Foundation, launched by the late Sir Bobby Robson in 2008, which raises money to help detect and treat cancer. 

Please be aware that the structure of the Cathedral means that not every seat has an uninterrupted view of the performance area. However, those seats will have a clear view of one of the performance screens.
