There’s something cool going on at York Minster this May half term which may even get young computer game addicts excited! Budding Master Masons will have the chance to create their own version of York Minster this May half term using the best-selling video game, Minecraft.
Using the 3D construction game, they can build the cathedral and see their creations projected onto a big screen inside the Minster on Tuesday 28th, Wednesday 29th and Thursday 30th May. Participants at the drop-in Master Mason sessions, which will run between 10am and 3pm in the Chapter House, can also design a cathedral in Lego and decorate a cardboard Minster den. The Minecraft activity is suitable for children aged 6+ and will be available on a first-come, first-served basis, depending on availability. The Lego and den making activities are suitable for children aged 3+. The Master Mason sessions are free with general admission. Admission tickets are valid for 12 months and family tickets start at £10 for up to four children visiting with one adult. Admission to York Minster is free for York residents with valid proof of address or a York card.
