Music is at the very heart of the cathedral and is a centre of excellence for both sacred and secular music. The acoustic of the building is superb and we hope you will agree that it is a very fine performance space indeed in which to enjoy your lunch!

The lunchtime recitals are just a part of the rich variety of performances which take place at the cathedral through the year.
