Cathedral Hire

Hiring the Cathedral

Evening Concerts and Lunchtime Recitals


The Cathedral has excellent acoustics and provides a magnificent setting for a large number of musical events every year. We have hosted a variety of concerts, from choral, to orchestral to popular music featuring a wide selection of performers, both of an international and a local standard. The Cathedral can accommodate both lunchtime and  evening concerts, and can seat up to 525 people for an evening concert. For evening concerts, posters and information will be displayed on the noticeboard, on the website and Facebook page once information has been provided. Performers are welcome to sell CDs, tapes and souvenirs on the day, by prior arrangement. We will provide a changing / storage space for performers at evening concerts only.

We want your event to be a success! In order to ensure that it all goes smoothly, we will ask you to:

  • Nominate a key contact, a non-performer, for us to work with on a day-to-day basis
  • Send us a completed booking form
  • Send us the required insurance details
  • The agreed deposit when your booking has been accepted
  • Agree any use of your own electrical equipment, lighting or fixtures with us beforehand
  • Comply in full with our Health and Safety policy
