Upcoming patron events

Christmas Reception (All Patrons)

Join us for a warming glass of mulled wine, a mince pie or two and some songs from our Choristers, as we get ready to welcome in the new year. This is an informal opportunity to mingle with fellow supporters, while enjoying a festive evening at the Cathedral.
