  • Wonderful illumination show despite some Covid restrictions in place. Who says we can’t have fun outside?! A joyful experience.

  • Visited St Chad's and the experience was excellent. Walked through the Cathedral. Had a look at the detailed memorials stones and all of the lovely windows. The feeling is very empowering. Really useful interactive displays all over the cathedral. Highly recommend to visit this beautiful building.
  • So many different exhibitions on throughout the year and their artist in residence does an amazing job at providing so many different things. The light shows that they have are aware winning and rightly so, with the while outside and inside of the cathedral transformed. With so many cathedrals charging for entry these days, it's refreshing to know that there is no barrier of entry and only a donation is asked for i8
