Tower Lighting Dates

January 11, 2024 December 31, 2024
St Edmundsbury Cathedral

We light the tower at St Edmundsbury Cathedral on special days to bring awareness to certain causes. Last year, we installed new LED lights on the tower, which are more eco-friendly and make changing colours much easier for our team. Below is a list of dates when the Cathedral tower will change colour, and what it means:


  • Saturday 27 January (purple) – Holocaust Memorial Day. Find out more here.
  • Thursday 1 February (red) – Go Red for the British Heart Foundation. Find out more here.
  • Monday 5 – Friday 9 February (green) – Kidney Cancer Awareness. Find out more here.
  • Tuesday 20 February – Cystic Fibrosis Trust’s 60th anniversary. Find out more here.
  • Friday 7 June (green) – Tourettes Action. Find out more here.
