Love music? Be sure to get your tickets early to hear the Derek Paravicini Quartet

Four stunningly talented young musicians portray a kaleidoscope of emotions through jazz standards, classical hits and songs from the shows.



Hear the Cathedral Choristers with Harpist Eluned Pierce perform Benjamin Britten's beautiful Ceremony of Carols or join us for the Candlemas Carol Service where the Cathedral Choir and Youth Choir will delight you.


We offer not one but two excellent Exhibitions:

‘Faith’ Friday 6 January – Sunday 26 February

An exhibition of portraits by Artist Russell Haines. The 34 participants of the exhibition were also captured on video talking about their beliefs and the commonalities between their different faiths. The conversations and explanations of the pictures will be available to view alongside the portraits throughout this amazing exhibition.


‘Sins of the World’ Wednesday 1 March – Tuesday 18 April

An exhibition of pictures and photographs in the Cloisters by Ted Harrison linking contemplation of the Passion with reflections on the horrors and evils of modern day warfare

Admission to both exhibitions is Free

Our younger visitors will be kept thoroughly entertained during February Half Term, so take a look at what's on offer and get the date in your diary now. From Glorious Gargoyles to Beads and Bones there is something for children of all ages.


All are invited to attend any of our daily services. If you haven't been to a service in the Cathedral before you are particularly welcome to come and relax in the peacefulness, take some time to contemplate or enjoy the glorious music sung by one of our Cathedral choirs.
