An Exhibition of Photographs of every Anglican and Catholic Cathedral in England and Wales

Phototography by Marcus Green

Saturday 13 November - Saturday 27 November

How about deciding to visit all of England’s Anglican Cathedrals, then deciding to add in the Catholic ones and for good measure do all the Welsh ones too, inside a year?

This is what management consultant Marcus Green from Stroud decided to try “because it should be possible and because they are there.”

To put this into perspective this was visiting over 70 places of worship whilst having at least two full times jobs and a busy family life.

Breakfast Club

Thursday and Sunday mornings 7.30am

Supporting the homeless and vulnerable is core to our values, our vision and mission and is realised through our Social Responsibility work. The challenges of Covid-19 and resulting restrictions have required different ways of working to help us build on our existing successes, but not without times of frustration and sadness that we can’t do more.

We are delighted that our Breakfast Club provision continues to run every Thursday and Sunday morning.  The dedicated volunteer team serve takeaway bacon rolls and hot drinks, utilising our outdoor spaces to ensure guests can observe social distancing when queuing, whilst still receiving a warm Cathedral welcome.

  • Breakfast Club runs on Thursday and Sunday at 7.30am-8.30am
  • Guests are asked to convene at the West end steps of the Cathedral where a queuing system is set up. 
  • We ask guests to wear face masks whenever possible and observe social distancing.

Our partners Gloucester City Mission also provides a hot meal and outreach services for those in need.  Visit their website www.gloscitymission.org.uk for more information.

Golden Anniversary Concert

You are warmly invited to join us for a concert at which we will celebrate Fifty Years of Chorister Sponsorship at Gloucester Cathedral.

Thanks to the generosity of so many people over the past half a century, hundreds of children have had the opportunity to be choristers in our glorious Cathedral, and many of them have gone on to be distinguished professional musicians, not least the patron of the Boy Choristers, Ed Gardner OBE, Principal Conductor of the London Philharmonic Orchestra.

All five of our resident choirs will be performing a selection of famous or new anthems in the concert in the Nave of the Cathedral, some of which were written for the Cathedral Choir.

We do hope that you can join us on this joyous occasion.

This concert is free to attend, however booking is essential. Please follow the link below to secure your free ticket(s) today.
