A journey with the Christmas story

Sue Symmons’ masterpiece ‘One Man’s Journey to Heaven’, also known as the Bath Abbey Diptychs, is an awe-inspiring work of art and craft depicting the life of Christ in pairs of sumptuously decorated panels; a combination of needlework, hand-drawn lettering, illumination and calligraphy. The Cathedral exhibits the Advent and Christmas series of the Diptychs.

In an evening of music, dance and storytelling based on One Man’s Journey to Heaven, Kala Sangam joins forces with local story teller Fred Stone to present a multi-media, multi-ethnic and multi-art interpretation of the Bath Abbey Diptychs on display at the Bradford Cathedral in Bradford on November 21.
