Chelmsford Cathedral
Cathedral Hire

Chelmsford Cathedral is located in an excellent central location, in the heart of Chelmsford City Centre. Due to its central location, it is the ideal venue for those travelling by train, on foot, or car, with parking available at nearby car parks.

The Cathedral is a flexible space which allows for a variety of concerts, lectures, and presentations throughout the year. It is also a fantastic venue to host corporate events, school and sixth form proms or dinner parties. For proms and dances, a dance floor can be hired. Our many industry contacts are experienced with working at the cathedral and are competitively priced.

Chelmsford Cathedral is known for its concerts and many concert organisers choose to hire staging for their event, which can be built to the specific needs of the concert. The Cathedral is also able to offer an up to date sound and lighting system that can contribute seamlessly to the desired atmosphere of your event.

The Cathedral offers a variety of flexible seating configurations for up to 700 people and our Operations Manager can make suggestions on how the cathedral and its facilities could be tailored to suit your event.

Our Operations Manager will be pleased to discuss your requirements and answer any questions you may have and full support is offered from the point of your initial enquiry to the conclusion of your booking. We welcome you to arrange a  visit to the Cathedral to view our facilities and see how we can support your service or event.

For any questions, availability and costs please contact Laura Brayford, Operations Manager 01245 294470 or by email
