Jo Clifford performs scenes from her modern classic ‘Jesus, Queen of Heaven’.

What would happen if Jesus did come back to earth in the present day as trans woman? Come to the cathedral on 17th August to find out. She’ll be by the High Altar for a couple of hours: sharing her stories, giving out blessings, and allowing time reflection. On the hour and the half hour between 2:30pm and 4:30pm. Entrance by donation.

In partnership with St Mary’s Cathedral.
