The Music@St Woolos concerts and recitals are usually free, with a retiring collection.
We hope that our audiences give generously, and in proportion to their enjoyment, as all profits from these performances go to the Cathedral's Appeal to restore the fabric of the building and enable it to continue to fulfil its role in the community.
In 2014 £2,000 was raised for the Appeal.
After the Saturday midday concerts there is an opportunity to meet the performers over a cup of tea or coffee.
Admission to the evening concerts is sometimes by ticket, the price of which often includes more substantial refreshments.
If you would like to receive details of these concerrts by e-mail please complete a slip in the St Mary Chapel, and place it in the box provided, or e-mail your details to
