News: Announcing the 2024 series of Coffee Concerts

Free Monthly Coffee Concerts at Guildford Cathedral 

Guildford Cathedral keeps up its musical traditions with free monthly coffee concerts and are delighted to announce our 2024 series, starting on 8 February. 

Talented and highly regarded performers from the local area have been inspiring visitors, staff, and volunteers alike with a varied programme of music since the Coffee Concerts started as part of the People’s Cathedral Project in 2015. As we enter our 9th year, we are delighted to be welcoming some familiar faces and some new ones too. 

The free coffee concerts see people from all generations come together to enjoy the concert series. The performers give their time so generously to enable the Cathedral to provide a much-needed activity for many in our community. 

The free concerts will run once a month on a Thursday with coffee in the Cathedral from 10:30am and music from 11:15am-12:00 noon.  

In February, we welcome back the talented ‘Rhythm of Life Community Choir,’ they are a local choir, but have some members from further afield. They will be singing a programme of old favourites and some new numbers as well. 

Mary Beal, Visitor Experience Officer commented: “We have such a wide audience that come to our concerts, from school children to residents from local care homes and members of the public. It is such a joy to see the pleasure on our visitors faces once they been to a concert.” 

Everyone is welcome to attend and with free parking and Seasons Café on site serving delicious lunches and refreshments and our gift shop, it makes for a pleasurable morning outing. We are very grateful for the ‘Borrows Charitable Trust’ for their sponsorship of our Coffee Concerts. For more information on our coffee concerts, please visit our website:
