Paradiso at the Cathedral 19 March, 2015

jindabyneThis coming Thursday 19 March 2015 7pm to 9:30 pm, Christ Church Cathedral presents the final instalment of Paradiso at the Cathedral 2015, a film festival hosted throughout Lent by Bishop Greg Thompson.

Jindabyne (2006)

Director: Ray Lawrence

Writers: Raymond Carver, Beatrix Christian

Stars: Laura Linney, Gabriel Byrne, Deborra-Lee Furness, John Howard

Country: Australia

A group of men (Gabriel Byrne, John Howard, Stelios Yiakmis) on a fishing trip makes the morally questionable decision to delay reporting the discovery of a murdered woman’s body. Claire (Laura Linney), the wife of one of the men, tries to understand the reasoning behind such thoughtlessness.

During the traditional forty days of Lent, Novocastrians will have the opportunity to attend a film festival with a difference. Christ Church Cathedral will be the dramatic backdrop for the screening of a series of international films, providing a space to explore the universal themes of love, redemption and hope. More information…

Banney’s Baton Banter: The Concert

At Newcastle’s Christ Church Cathedral on Tuesday, March 24, at 7 for 7:30pm, Christ Church Camerata returns for 2015 with something a little different. One of ABC1233’s most popular weekly radio programmes “Banney’s Baton Banter” comes to the concert stage in this not-to-be-missed event. Be part of the live audience as David Banney, ABC’s Paul Bevan, and Christ Church Camerata join for three entertaining Banters in one evening, to be recorded for later broadcast on the ABC. Admission is free (a donation to support the work of the Hunter Medical Research Institute will be received).  Tune in to 1233 ABC Newcastle for a chance to win the best seats in the house, or turn up on the night to be part of the audience.
