Theatre, Exhibitions, Talks and More

The Minster hosts a range of events throughout the year, many of them are free of charge whilst some are provided as a means of fundraising for the numerous things we need to do to maintain the Minster and to keep it free for all those who visit us. Throughout the year we aim to have a balanced programme of events that we hope will appeal to a wide range of people.

Do have a look at the events calendar which we hope will inspire you to come to a talk, a concert, or to spend some time in the Minster or is gardens. Whatever you decide to do you can be sure of a warm and friendly welcome.
