Concerts and Recitals

Upcoming Events

We run two regular series of recitals at the Cathedral:

  • Lunchtime Recitals - Thursdays at 1.10, free with visitor entry ticket or pass
    Typically running in two or three brief series each year.
  • Organ Recitals - Sundays at 5.15, free entry
    Typically running throughout the summer months

Details of upcoming programmes will appear on the main Events page.

Expressions of interest to perform in these series are always welcome; please contact

Please note that the Cathedral diary is very full and so we do not usually host lunchtime concerts or organ recitals at other times.
