Half Term activities: Digital Masons

Scroll to explore

Budding Master Masons will have the chance to create their own version of York Minster this May half-term using best-selling video game Minecraft.

Youngsters can use the 3D construction game to build the cathedral and see their creations projected onto a big screen inside the Minster on Tuesday 28th, Wednesday 29th and Thursday 30th May.

Minecraft, which is the second best-selling video game of all time after Tetris, allows gamers to place blocks to create virtual worlds and go on adventures.

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 £11.50 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.
