Opening hours to be extended, and choral worship to return

Following updated guidance from the Government and the Church of England, we are delighted that from Sunday 30 August choral worship will return to Bristol Cathedral for the 10.00am Cathedral Eucharist.

On Sunday 30 August we will welcome The Melgás Consort. A small and dedicated group of professional singers, the Melgás Consort has sung services in Bristol Cathedral for a number of years. They specialise in lesser-known early music, often focusing on their namesake, the Portuguese composer Diogo Dias Melgás. 

On Sunday 6 September we will welcome The Fitzhardinge Consort. "Fitz", as they are affectionately known, have sung in services and concerts in and around Bristol for nearly 10 years. 

With the new school term starting soon, we also hope to bring definitive news on when the Cathedral Choir will be able to return as well.


September Opening Hours

From Tuesday 1 September, our daily offices will be once again open to the public. The Cathedral will be open from 9.00am to 4.00pm Tuesday to Saturday.

Sunday Worship

As well as the (now choral) Eucharist at 10.00am, we will also be offering a BCP Holy Communion at 8.00am and Evening Prayer at 3.30pm on Sundays. The Cathedral will open at 7.45am for those attending the 8.00am service, and at 11.30am for visitors. It will close at 4.00pm on Sundays.

Attendance at both the 8.00am and 10.00am services will need to be booked in advance, and can be done so here.
