** Due to the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic, the lecture "Swapping the Abbot for a Dean", on Saturday 21st March has been postponed, as has the trip to Hereford in May, and the visit to Colesbourne in June. We plan to reschedule all these events later in the year. Sadly we have had to make the decision to cancel the Summer Party. Booking for Autumn 2020 events will open on 1st July 2020**

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.
