Bragg to give anniversary lecture
CARLISLE Cathedral celebrates its 900th anniversary year with a special lecture from author and broadcaster Melvyn Bragg this weekend.
Lord Bragg, who is originally from Wigton, said the cathedral has given the city ‘great distinction’.
He will give a talk on Friday on how William Tyndale’s revolutionary translation of the bible, which led to the King James version, influenced the way we use modern English today.
The lecture is part of a major programme of worships, events, talks, concerts and exhibitions throughout 2022 to mark 900 years since the foundation of Carlisle Cathedral.
Lord Bragg said: “I like to visit Carlisle Cathedral every time I come to the city.
“As a boy, I have small memories of being taken there for great occasions.
“Particularly at present, it is vitally important that the Church of England celebrates its powerful history.”
