Being Human: Let’s Discover Stained Glass

As part of the Being Human national festival of the humanities, Sheffield Cathedral is pleased to be working in partnership with the University of Sheffield to host two exciting and contrasting events. 

From philosophy in pubs, history in coffeehouses, classics on social media and language lessons on street corners – the Being Human festival provides new ways to experience how the humanities can inspire and enrich our everyday lives. Being Human demonstrates the strength and diversity of the humanities, and how they can help us to understand ourselves, our relationships with others, and the challenges we face in a changing world.

Let’s Discover Stained Glass

A fun, free, family event - not booking required. 

Come and discover the art of stained glass at Sheffield Cathedral in this family, child-friendly art activity. Be inspired by the Cathedral’s famous Lantern Window and have a go at making your own stained glass window as an illustration of well-known Old Testament stories.

As well as making your own stained glass window, you can also take on the challenge of our stained glass window treasure hunt – how many stained glass windows can you find?
