Chichester Cathedral is delighted to be joining the very first Virtual Festival of Chichester.

Following the cancellation of live events following the outbreak of the Coronavirus (COIVD-19), the Festival of Chichester committee determined that summer 2020 should still see a celebration of the arts, but in a new form.

From the 13th June audiences will be able to experience a number of events and activities online, with something new posted every day until Sunday 12th July.
