July 2022

Summer at Guildford Cathedral

This summer there is a packed programme for everyone to look forward to at Guildford Cathedral.


For the Art Lover

Fiona Bunn’s Alpine photographs are an appreciation of the alps, a journey between darkness and light reflecting the challenges for these ancient landscapes.  A simple stunning exhibition which will be on display at the Cathedral from 5 July to 29 August, which is part of our 2022 Art Exhibitions.  You can find more information Here


For Families

We have special events for our younger visitors this month.  Our monthly Cathedral Tots will be running from 10am on Wednesday 6 July.  This informal service is aimed at pre-schoolers and their parents/carers with a bible story, craft, song and prayer, plus refreshments.  This month the well-known Bible story ‘Joshua and the battle of Jericho’ will be read and children will have fun making trumpets and will make lots of noise in the Cathedral as they listen to the story.  No booking is required; all children must be accompanied. 

With the long summer holidays starting, our Family Fun Day will be taking place on Wednesday 27 July with two entry times of 10am and 11am.  Our summer-themed day allows families to enjoy engaging activities in our wonderful space.  All our children’s events are free, but booking is essential for our Fun Days.  These days are aimed at all primary school aged children and all children need to be accompanied by an adult.  You can find more information here
