Lindisfarne anniversary concert leads the Autumn line-up of events at Bradford Cathedral

The rescheduled Lindisfarne concert – marking their fiftieth anniversary – forms part of an impressive early Autumn line-up of events at Bradford Cathedral.

The concert, which takes place on Saturday 18th September, will see the five-piece band entertaining the Bradford crowd with hits such as Fog on the Tyne and Meet Me On The Corner. A limited number of tickets for the concert, which follows the 2019 sell-out ‘Steeleye Span’ performance, are still available from the Bradford Cathedral Eventbrite page, or they can be booked by calling the Cathedral box office.

There are many other events happening during the same month at Bradford Cathedral, including:

·         Aire Valley Arts exhibition ‘Unfolding’, which showcases pieces created during the pandemic. This is a joint exhibition between the Cathedral and Kala Sangam, and runs from the start of September until the 28th October, with a free launch event on Wednesday 1st September from 7pm

·         The Bradford Faith Trail continues on the first Saturday of September and October, offering an opportunity to discover more about five different places of worship in the city.

·         The regular programme of Bradford Cathedral Evensong returns on Sunday 5th September, and you can discover this beautiful service of prayer and music Sundays at 3:30pm and every Monday and Tuesday at 5:30pm

·         The Rt Revd Toby Howarth, Bishop of Bradford, will be presenting a reflection on his recent sabbatical at a talk on the evening of Wednesday 15th September

·         The Cathedral will be offering its contribution to this year’s Heritage Open Days with an open afternoon on Sunday 19th September, including a talk about textile artist Louisa Pesel

·         And, looking ahead to October, there will be a showing of The Greatest Showman as part of Widescreen in the Community from this year’s Widescreen Weekend on Friday 8th October

More events and services will be announced soon as the Autumn programme expands, with services and events to mark the season of Harvest, a vintage fair, and a performance of Faure’s Requiem just some of the upcoming highlights in October and November, ahead of a busy Advent and Christmas programme this December.

Bradford Cathedral is also open for visitors Monday – Saturday 10am – 4pm (except Wednesdays 12noon – 4pm).
