From Monday 17 May, the Cathedral will open again, though opening hours are reduced slightly in order to allow for the extra work involved in keeping the Cathedral Covid-secure. Visitors are asked to check the Cathedral website (www.lichfield-cathedral.org) before setting out for the latest opening times, especially as on some days the Cathedral will still be operating as a vaccination centre and therefore not open to the public.
A full summer programme of events is being planned, and visitors will be greeted by the first exhibition in a ‘summer of creativity, spirituality and science’. The exhibition, “Fantastic Books and where to find them” will encourage visitors to explore ancient books from the Cathedral’s own library. The ancient texts will help visitors to see how our ancestors - the forebears of those who created our Covid vaccine - understood aspects of science and nature, including astrology and medicine.
At the entrance to the Cathedral, a mobile catering outlet will ensure the sale of hot and cold drinks and snacks, providing sustenance for the visit and the Cathedral’s regular pattern of three services/day will continue both in person and on-line.
