Welcome to Bradford Cathedral in the new Diocese of West Yorkshire and the Dales.
This month we continue the celebrations by having three Enthronement services! The Bishop of Leeds will be enthroned in Bradford Cathedral on 17th July, Wakefield Cathedral two days earlier and Ripon Cathedral three days later. Together with ‘Le Tour’ in Yorkshire 2014 continues to be a very special year for us.
We hope that we shall have the opportunity to meet you at one of our services

Presentation of Cheque from Friends of Cathedral Music
We are very pleased to welcome on Sunday July 6th Professor Peter Toyne, Chairman of the Friends of Cathedral Music, to present us with a most generous grant from the FCM, for which we are exceedingly grateful. This funding will allow us to appoint a graduate musician to work alongside the Music Department staff and to enhance markedly our provision of vocal training and development to our child, teen and adult choristers. The FCM has offered to fund a part-time graduate musician for some three years, a total grant of some £24,000. We are sure that this ability to extend our offer of training to our choir members will have a very beneficial impact upon the musical development of our choristers and the Cathedral Choir as a whole
