Lunchtime at the Cathedral

Southwell Minster's popular lunchtime concerts resumed in the autumn of 2021 after the break caused by the pandemic. These concerts will now take place at the new time of 1.30pm on many Fridays, with performers coming from around the country to perform a wide variety of instrumental and vocal music in the spectacular setting of the Cathedral Nave.

Admission is free and the concerts last approximately 45 minutes. There is a retiring collection the proceeds of which help to fund the Minster's Organ Scholarship. Please pick up a free programme upon your arrival.

We are pleased to be able to announce that from now on we will be able to offer tea, coffee and biscuits from 1pm prior to each concert. (However, please note that we are not able to offer the sandwich lunch that used to be available prior to these concerts).
