If you are a group organiser and are interested in the Cathedral but unable to arrange a visit, you could book a talk on one of several aspects of the life of the Cathedral. There is not a fixed charge for this service, but you will be invited to make an appropriate donation to the Cathedral and will be asked to pay travelling expenses for your speaker.
More information on talks, tours and charges can be found by calling our Education and Visitors Office on 01733 355300 or email email@example.com.
