the bird that never flew,

the fish that never swam,

the bell that never rang….

This online event is hosted by Revd Mark Johnson, minister of Glasgow Cathedral, Dr Gordon Wyllie, Trustee of the Glasgow Medieval Trust and The Revd Canon Joseph Morrow, Lord Lyon King of Arms.

The lecture will be shown as part of a Zoom event and will be followed by a Q&A for which you can send in questions during the broadcast.


Mediaeval Glasgow Trust‘s mission is to share and promote interest in the mediaeval history and heritage of Glasgow from its foundations in the 6th century AD, with a focus mainly on its mediaeval development within the period 1100 to 1600. You can also follow their Twitter feed.

Glasgow Cathedral, also called the High Kirk of Glasgow or St Kentigern’s or St Mungo’s Cathedral, is the oldest cathedral on mainland Scotland and is the oldest building in Glasgow. Since the Reformation the cathedral continues in public ownership, within the responsibility of Historic Environment Scotland. The Society of Friends of Glasgow Cathedral was founded by the late Very Revd Nevile Davidson, D.D. in 1936. During the year the Society of Friends promotes Summer Music Recitals, a Winter Lecture Series and other special events.
