Concerts & Recitals
Music@StWoolos organise and promote many of the concerts and recitals on our music calendar.
Others are arranged independently, or may be part of special events or performances.
The Music @ St Woolos concerts and recitals are usually free, with a retiring collection.
We hope that our audiences give generously, in a way that reflects their enjoyment, as all profits from these performances go to the Cathedral’s funds to restore and maintain the fabric of the building and enable it to continue to fulfil its role in the community.
After the mid-day performances there is usually an opportunity to meet the performers over a cup of tea or coffee.
Evening performances usually have an interval during which refreshments are available.
If you are not yet on our contact list and would like to receive details of these concerts by email please complete a slip in the St Mary Chapel as you leave, and place it in the box provided, or email your details to
