You can play an important part in enabling tens of thousands of people to benefit from all that Coventry Cathedral and its communities provide.
In common with the city to which it belongs, Coventry Cathedral challenges and embraces like nowhere else. We bring together the radical and the traditional — in music, in the visual and performance arts, in community healing and in worship. It is a place alive with energy and hope and a commitment to building a kinder world.
Built in 1962, the Harrison & Harrison organ is judged to be of outstanding national significance and was awarded a British Institute of Organ Studies Grade I Historic Organs Certificate in 2013. The architect of the New Cathedral, Sir Basil Spence himself designed the façade of the organ, making it an intrinsic part of the architecture and cathedral building.
The organ is at the heart of the community of Coventry Cathedral and we need your help to preserve our 'best in the world' organ.
Recently, the organ has been showing significant signs of fatigue, with many parts wearing away or broken due to age, and we now need to raise funds to help refurbish the organ for generations to come.
The Fundraising Team at the Coventry Cathedral is looking for people to come together and join a new fundraising group to meet regularly and chat over a cup of tea or coffee on how you can raise extra funds to support the Cathedral. There'll be a lot to chat about!
