We have all heard the bells ringing as we pass a church or cathedral, but have you ever wondered how it’s done?

Derby Cathedral would like to invite you to find out more about this unique form of music-making at its annual Bellringers’ Tower Open Day, which is taking place on Bank Holiday Easter Monday 6th April.

All through the day, visitors to the Cathedral will be able to tour the tower, watch change ringing demonstrations and try ringing a real bell under careful supervision.

April 2nd is World Autism Awareness Day, a day sanctioned by the United Nations. Each year iconic buildings across the globe, such as the Sydney Opera House, Leaning Tower of Pisa and Empire State Building are lit blue, to highlight the Awareness of Autism. This year Autism Awareness Derby UK & Derby Cathedral are delighted to announce that the Cathedral will be taking part and its tower will be lit blue.

Holy Week 2015

The Bishop of Derby will soon be giving three Holy Week addresses at the Cathedral, details as below. He will be seeking to link the story of Christ’s passion and death with themes connected with good government and the forthcoming general election.

The Cathedral will be hosting a variety of services for all who are interested to gather round the Bishop and hear some of his interpretation. There will be free parking in the Cathedral car park or on Iron Gate, just outside the Cathedral.
