CANCELLED The Story of the Sacred Journey (The Legend of the City)

Gala Theatre, Durham, Dr Brendan Quayle

Due to unforeseen circumstances, we regret to inform you that this event has been cancelled. Commissioned by Durham City Council, and originally screened in large scale 70mm format, Sacred Journey was produced by local film maker and writer Dr Brendan Quayle. Telling the story of St. Cuthbert and the birth of Durham, the film powerfully dramatises the legendary origins one of the country’s most fascinating cities. Here we present a screening of the film (22 mins) followed by Brendan discussing the origin of the film and its creation.
