BBC Civilisations Festival Exhibition

The BBC Civilisations Festival marks the updated return of the classic 1969 television series 'Civilisation' to our screens. 

As part of this relaunch, museums, galleries, libraries and archives across the UK have been invited to share objects from their collections that contribute to the larger questions about human identity, community, and cultural values which the landmark series examines.

As as Festival partner, Sheffield Cathedral has chosen to display objects from its collection of silverware and metalwork. These treasures together tell stories of our region's impressive industrial heritage, its craftsmanship and creativity, its enduring Christian faith, and of those people and communities who have contributed to its rich cultural legacy. 

The exhibition opens on 2 March and will be open during normal Cathedral opening hours until 11 March. The exhibition is free. 

Civilisations Festival events are running at a range of locations between 2 and 11 March 2018. To learn more about exhibitions and events in our area and beyond - and to see some of the objects of interest on display - you can visit the Museum Crush Civilisations Festival website.
