Chester Cathedral In Lego
Explore cathedral life in miniature and learn all about our 1000 year history as we retell our story, LEGO brick by brick, from the very beginning. The Chester Cathedral in Lego building project will take 350000 individual Lego pieces and transform them into an accurate scale model of the cathedral that will reach almost 4m in length and 2m in height. Members of the public will be able to purchase their own small piece of history in the form of a Lego brick to be included in the model and will be encouraged to learn all about the cathedral’s 1000 year history as the multi-layered story of the building through the ages is retold, brick by brick, from the very beginning. Volunteer bricklayers will work every day of the week to build the model from the foundations up and it is estimated that the project will take up to four years to complete.

Chester Philharmonic's November Concert
Saturday 18 November 2017
Chester Philharmonic’s November concert completes last season’s theme. On the 18th November at 7.30pm in Chester Cathedral you can hear the last of the“High Five” concert series with a performance of Mahler’s Fifth Symphony. This work’s fourth movement, the well known ‘Adagietto’, featured in Visconti’s film “Death in Venice” is arguably Mahler’s best known music. Our special guest is the international Guitarist Craig Ogden’s in a performance of Ponce’s Concierto del sul which was dedicated to Segovia. You will also hear music by Schreker. Both these early twentieth century contemporaries of Mahler write exquisite and tuneful music and we will be privileged to hear. The conductor is Stephen Threlfall. Tickets priced at £16; £12 and £9 are available from 01244 500959 or via our website.

Chester Cathedral
We are delighted that Cheshire Constabulary, Cheshire Fire and Rescue Service and North West Ambulance Service have been able to get together for the thirteenth, joint Emergency Service Christmas Carol Concert.

In protecting people and responding to emergencies our staff increasingly work together in partnership. It is only fitting, therefore, that we also join together outside our day to day work for this seasonal celebration.

Chester Cathedral is a wonderful setting for our joint event and we hope both staff and guests thoroughly enjoy the festive atmosphere.

Doors open: 7.00pm
Concert starts: 7.30pm
We look forward to seeing you there.
