In this year of celebrating 100 years of Votes for Women, the BP Durham Cathedral Adventure is building on this and will be celebrating all heroes – personal, local, national, historical or fictional.  Participants are encouraged to bring a costume to wear, or item relating to their chosen hero and will exchange view on what makes a hero a hero.    There will be photo opportunities around the Cathedral which has strong links to many historical heroes and also filming of super heroes.

  • an environmental service project
  • interactive activities and co-operative sessions
  • sleeping in the Cathedral

To help girls arriving by train for this adventure they ca be collected from Durham Station and then taken back at the end of the Adventure.  Regretfully this cannot include parents, only participants of the adventure.
