Photography, Filming and Recording


Visitors to the Cathedral are welcome to photograph or take short video clips for their private use, outside and inside the building during times when services or events are not taking place.

We ask that you are respectful of those using the building for quiet prayer.

A donation towards the running costs of the Cathedral would be appreciated in return for your footage.

During Services and Events

We ask that photographs, video and sound recordings are NOT made during acts of worship or during events. These can be disruptive and sound and video footage is likely to come under the scope of copyright law.

Venue Hire for Films, Projects etc.

The Cathedral will consider requests for shooting film footage, making recordings etc. on an individual basis. Please contact the Cathedral Bookings Manager to discuss the nature of your request.

The Cathedral will normally make a charge for use of the building in this way, and all footage must be credited: “By kind permission of the Dean and Chapter of Leicester Cathedral”.
