Fundraising Events

Our main fundraising event is our nationally recognised, and ever popular, Festival of Flowers; a three day celebration of flowers and creativity, within the stunning setting of the Cathedral.

From time to time we run other fundraising events, recent examples being:

  • A dinner in the Nave hosted by the Dean with special guest Emma Bridgewater.
  • A Fête Champêtre, in the beautiful gardens of Pashley Manor, East Sussex, featuring guided tours with the owner James Sellick, the head gardener Keith Boylett and sculptor Philip Jackson.
  • Talks by modern day plant hunters held at Chichester College.
  • Extensions to the Cathedral's popular free lunchtime concert series featuring international pianists (as part of the Festival of Chichester).
