BMW Launch in Peterborough Cathedral09/02/2017
Following the launch of the new BMW Series 5 in Peterborough Cathedral on 9th February 2017, a number of people have asked about the basis for hosting such an event, and so this reflection has been offered by the Acting Dean.
Careful thought went into considering beforehand whether this event was appropriate in the Cathedral, and boundaries were set out. The event was confined to the Nave, and the behaviour of everyone was at all times respectful. For example, no sales took place. The dealers were free to follow up their guests after the event, but not during. Also at the event was a stall run by a charity supported by the dealers and a craft stall; there was a strong community feel to the evening.
