Friends Events

Friends of Gloucester Cathedral logo

The Friends arrange a programme of events every year. These include lectures relating to the history of the Cathedral and other topics related to the Cathedral, private tours to places of interest, and parties in the summer and at Christmas.

We aim to bring together members of the Friends who have a common interest in the Cathedral. We also welcome members to bring along their own friends, and hope that some of these will also be interested in joining us.

** Be sure to check these pages on a regular basis as we plan our new 2021 events shedule - subject to guidelines.**
