  1. Visitors are welcome with a brand new exhibition, The Two Thomases. Monday – Saturday, 10 am – 3 pm The Cathedral kindly ask that if you are displaying any symptoms of Covid-19 that you refrain from visiting the Cathedral To access the Mappa Mundi & Chained Library, visitors will be asked to arrive at the main entrance of the Cathedral and follow the one-way system through the building into the Chapter House Garden. There will be a hand sanitising station at the entrance to the exhibition that they ask all visitors to use before entering Staff will be taking a name and contact number or email from one person in each party to support with NHS Test and Trace Limiting numbers of visitors into the exhibition to support with social distancing. On arrival at the Mappa Mundi & Chained Library, you may be asked to wait at the door as other visitors move through the exhibition. To support with the one-way system and to prevent crowding, they have opened the cloister doors at the end of the exhibition so that visitors will exit to the West End of the Cathedral. Currently, visitors do not need to book tickets in advance of their visit. Instead these can be purchased on the day from the member of staff at the Exhibition entrance. Card, cash or smartphone payments, but cards are preferable if possible. The one-way route through the Mappa Mundi & Chained Library is easy to follow, but one of their volunteers may ask you to wait outside the Mappa Mundi chamber for other visitors to move on to ensure everyone’s visit is comfortable. Volunteers will be welcoming visitors to the exhibition and helping to control visitor numbers. You are kindly asked that visitors respect social distancing guidelines throughout their visit. Unfortunately they are unable to distribute any leaflets or interpretation literature within the exhibition at this time. Information can be found online here and a range of books and souvenirs are available to purchase from the Cathedral Shop. The touchscreens may be unavailable for use to avoid any health risks If you are looking to plan a larger group visit with individuals from outside of your household or bubble, you are kindly asked that you contact the Cathedral Office (office@herefordcathedral.org) in advance so that they can support your visit. Full details can be found on the Cathedral website
  2. We have acquired this old postcard recently and thought it was quite interesting.. The caption on the card says, "Hereford, Cathedral from the River Bank" It is printed and has been postally used dated September 15th 1908, what is written on the reverse is fascinating... see here >>> https://hfd.news/2rd

  5. The Three Choirs Festival has begun in Hereford and is a week-long programme of choral and orchestral concerts, cathedral services, solo and chamber music recitals, masterclasses, talks, theatre, exhibitions and walks, rotating each summer between the beautiful English cathedral cities of Hereford, Gloucester and Worcester. It is the oldest non-competitive classical music festival in the world, which celebrated its 300th anniversary in 2015. At the heart of the modern festival are the large-scale evening concerts featuring the Three Choirs Festival Chorus and the Philharmonia Orchestra, which has been resident at the festival since 2012. The main festival’s packed schedule of daytime events is augmented by a community programme which varies slightly in style in each city. The Three Choirs Festival is run by dedicated voluntary committees in Hereford, Worcester and Gloucester, supported by a small professional management team based at the Three Choirs Festival Association’s office in Gloucester. The Three Choirs Festival, which was first held in 1715, is probably the oldest music festival in the world. The Festival is held in turn in one of the three cathedral cities of Gloucester, Hereford and Worcester. This year the Festival takes place between 28 July and 4 August and, by rotation, it will be hosted by the cathedral and city of Hereford. Click HERE for tickets and more details.
