  • Our team of Vergers and welcome volunteers will be on hand if there’s anything you require.

There are many services and events taking place at the  cathedral everyday.  The calendar below outlines what you can expect if you plan to visit us.

There may be times when the cathedral is closed for private events.  We will endeavour to update this calendar accordingly.
