Performance of Handel's Messiah at Birmingham Cathedral


The stage is set for spectacular concerts and performances.

The celebration of music has been at the heart of cathedral life since St Philip’s was a parish church. Today, in addition to our professional choir singing regular choral services, we also host intimate concerts within our beautiful setting.  

We have step-free access, ground-floor toilets, and gallery seating for larger audiences.

We can also run a fully licensed and staffed bar on request.

Our preferred days for evening concerts are Mondays, Thursdays and Saturdays. Alternative arrangements can be considered, depending on cathedral services and activities.

A stunning setting for sophisticated private dining.

Our nave is a beautiful open space, overlooked by some of the world’s finest stained-glass windows. This can be transformed into your very own formal dining experience with a sit-down arrangement for up to 120 people. This also includes space for celebrations to include music, speeches, and other entertainment.

Our experienced events team can recommend trusted partners to provide catering, as this will need to be sourced separately.
