The Summer Organ Festival returns this year with a series of concerts on Tuesday evenings in July and August at 7.30pm. Each concert lasts approximately 70 minutes.

Alongside members of the Cathedral’s own music department we welcome distinguished visiting organists from around the country. Come along and hear the Cathedral Organ put through its’ paces as our recitalists explore the organ’s many colours and the vast breadth of repertoire written for the instrument.

Each concert has large screen projection to see the organists’ hands and feet at work.
