At the Stade de France, the Bataclan, in the cafes and restaurants of Paris... on Friday 13th November, terrorists killed and wounded many innocent people. And in doing so, they also aimed also to kill these places that we love, places which represent culture and a spirit of sharing.
We at WorldEventListings share the grief of the friends and families of the victims of the terrorist attacks of 13th November 2015. And we offer our unconditional support to all the cultural venues affected.
Our raison d'être has always been to share cultural information with as many people as possible. We will continue. We will win. Their failure is only a matter of time.

Description

At the centre of controversy.

Building work on Lille Cathedral started in the mid-nineteenth century but was only completed with the construction of the main facade in 1999.
The vast, Gothic-inspired structure should have been even bigger. But the course of history was to decide otherwise.

Designed by Lille-based architect Pierre-Louis Carlier, the main facade has been a major talking point. Comprising a 100-foot pointed arch covered with 110 white marble plaques a tenth of an inch thick, it appears opaque from the outside but allows an orangey-pink light to enter the interior.
Go take a look and judge for yourself!
