Hushed tones to hearty conviviality

The Digbeth Dining Club moves indoors to transform the nave

Regularly, the Digbeth Dining Club transforms the inevitably melancholy atmosphere of The Ruin into one of welcome warm-heartedness. On one occasion, the weather proved so inhospitable that the decision was taken to move the event indoors - into the nave of the New Cathedral. Overlooked by the West Window’s famous dancing angels, happy diners enjoyed each other’s company whilst, in many cases, looking at the cathedral in a whole new light.

Looking at things is new ways is important to the work of Coventry Cathedral. It reminds us that there are almost always different ways of seeing and understanding something, or someone.

The image above shows the nave in quieter times. The one below, courtesy of Gary Jones, shows the evening in full swing, complete with cocktail bar and a gin truck.
