Visiting Manchester Cathedral during the summer

Published: 27 July 2016

This summer the interior of the Cathedral will undergo a major transformation. A new organ will be installed on the medieval screen, a stained-glass window - the Hope window - will be fitted beside the statue of Humphrey Chetham, and a new visitor entrance will be opened at the east end of the building. Tours and access to some areas will be restricted, but our doors will remain open and services and events will continue uninterrupted.

We have ‘turned the Nave around’ so that the backdrop to this summer’s programme of events, talks, concerts, festivals and fairs will be the west tower and the stunning ‘wall of light’ created by Antony Hollaway’s famous stained glass windows. This will allow our wonderful team of designers, installers, architects and organ-builders to complete their work in the east end of the Cathedral.

Regardless of whether you are a visitor to Manchester or have lived in this city all your life, you will be made most welcome.

General admission is free and our magnificent team of volunteers will be here every day to help you enjoy your visit and keep you updated on everything that is going on.
