Welcome to the Bradford Cathedral website. The Cathedral is one of Yorkshire’s ‘hidden gems’. It is the oldest building in the City but it also has a wonderful 20th century extension. Ancient and modern. Visitors are constantly surprised and uplifted by this intimate and yet inspiring place of prayer. Since the first millennium Christians have worshipped on this hillside in the centre of Bradford. We look forward to welcoming you.
Entry by FREE ticket available from the Cathedral Office (01274 777720)
Bradford's 70th Festival of Remembrance is being held in the Cathedral this year, due to the temporary closure of St George's Hall for refurbishment. Join the City of Bradford Brass Band, Claire White-McKay, St John's CofE Primary School and the Cathedral Choir for this annual event which also includes the Parade of Standards and Service of Remembrance.
Thanks to a grant from the First World War Centenary Cathedral Repairs Fund, work has commenced on replacing our old boilers meaning that there is no heating available in the Cathedral. The work will take around four weeks but, in the meantime, we would recommend bringing a warm coat if attending a service or event that necessitates sitting around for a while. We hope to restore normal warmth by 1 November!
Alexander Berry MA (Cantab) FRCO
We are very pleased to announce the appointment of Alex Berry as Organist & Director of Music. Alex comes to the Cathedral from Oxford, where he is Assistant Organist at Magdalen College, Oxford. There, he divides his time between playing for daily services in the college chapel and, in his capacity as Tutor to the Choristers at Magdalen College School, teaches a programme of theory and musicianship to the choristers.
Having been born in the East Riding, Alex is very much looking forward to rediscovering Yorkshire. In his spare time he enjoys walking and travelling, so having Ilkley Moor and the Yorkshire Dales on his doorstep provides him with plenty of plans for his days off. Alex is keen to get to know the Cathedral and its congregation, and hopes to make a few visits prior to arriving in January.
The Dean said “I am delighted that Alex has accepted the invitation to join Bradford Cathedral. I am confident that he will build on the great foundation that has been laid over the past few years and continue the excellent music tradition here. I do look forward to working with him.”
