Advent at Gloucester Cathedral
‘What are you waiting for?‘ is the question posed on an old wooden door outside Gloucester Cathedral. If you’re curious enough to open the door you’ll find a different image or bible verse each day to mark the countdown to Christmas. The images shown have been taken in various locations around Gloucester and feature the papier mache models from the Cathedrals Nativity scene. Day 2 saw the three Wise Men reading Astrology books in Waterstones, Day 6 saw Mary and Joseph easing their wait with a cuppa in Stan Man’s Kitchen Delicatessen and at some point we’ll see the Shepherds browsing the stock in the wool shop!
You can follow the daily Advent door changes here.
If you’re in Gloucester and happen to walk past the door in the next week you may also spot bumpsome old me with Mary at the Maternity Unit at Gloucester Royal Hospital. I haven’t seen the final image yet but here’s a sneak preview of some of the snaps that were taken.
update: Bump and Mary appeared on the 9th December
