Become a Patron

The Patrons’ membership programme comprises three categories: individual; corporate and benefactor. This is a new scheme and is integral to the continuation of worship and care that stretches back one thousand years. They are as important now, in this time of great social upheaval, as they have ever been.

Patrons, in return for their philanthropic support, become deeply embedded in the life of St Edmundsbury Cathedral. You will help to conserve the historic buildings and artefacts; maintain our enriching music; and support our learning and community activities. We do hope you will join us.

The Friends is a thriving group of around 350 members who are linked by their love for the Cathedral and their commitment to helping maintain the cathedral fabric. At the moment, the Friends are raising money for the refurbishment of the Lady Chapel.

As a Friend you will receive invitations to Friends’ events and receptions, be an extended part of the Cathedral family and meet people of similar interests.
