Become a Patron

Thank you for thinking of becoming a patron of St Edmundsbury Cathedral. In return for your philanthropic support for our mission and our music, we provide imaginative patron events and activities throughout the year.

In this time of great social upheaval, our Cathedral is needed more than ever. We do hope you will support us by becoming a patron.

The Friends, founded in 1942, is an independent charity. Its object is to support the Chapter in its work by adding to the fabric and beauty of the cathedral.  In recent years they have supported projects such as the West End furnishings, Bishops and Deans’ stone and new Altar frontal and dossal for the Lady Chapel.

As a Friend and part of an active community of like-minded people, you will receive the Annual Report, newsletters and full details of all events including day trips, speakers and holidays.
