The Cathedral is open every day…all day… and most evenings, to accommodate the daily round of worship, and a host of events, tours and meetings.
Just to keep the Cathedral running requires nearly half a million pounds every year (or to put it another way, £57 for every hour of every day of every year) . And an enormous building like this costs a great deal more in maintenance and repair work.
We continue to be grateful for the generosity of those who support our work, but as costs continually rise, we need to encourage all who have an interest in what we stand for to help us.
Blackburn Cathedral: Revealing the Hidden Heritage
With the support of the Heritage Lottery Fund, we plan to bring the empty and underused crypt at Blackburn Cathedral back to life as a vibrant community, exhibition and event venue. Please give generously to Blackburn Cathedral: Revealing the Hidden Heritage.
