An establishment such as this means many different things to many different people. Chester Cathedral aims to embrace all sectors of the community whilst ensuring the survival of this magnificent building for future generations.
The Cathedral hosts major community services for the Council, military organisations, charities, the Scout and Guide Associations, and local schools as well as providing the largest venue in the city for orchestral performances, concerts, and charitable fundraisers.
Chester Cathedral welcomes thousands of primary and secondary school children for educational visits and holds an annual sixth-form conference and is also a centre of musical excellence with its weekly Organ Recitals. The Cathedral hosts some of the finest choirs in the country.
Chester Cathedral is an ancient abbey and is a treasure of international importance that has played a significant part in shaping the history of the City. The site stretches from the Cathedral, with the most complete set of monastic buildings in the country, through the Georgian square and streets, to the Roman barracks on the Dean’s field and includes the largest green spaces within the walls.
