Sheffield Cathedral refurbishment project almost complete

Have your say

A major refurbishment project at Sheffield Cathedral is nearing completion.

The Gateway Project, which has seen work carried out to the entrance, interior and forecourt of the Cathedral, is due to be finished next month.

The Very Reverend Peter Bradley, Dean of Sheffield Cathedral, said: “We want to make sure all is safe and in place before we encourage tours and viewings.

“It is important though at this time of year that we are able to provide our congregations with an opportunity to worship, and will therefore be hosting Easter services where we can.

“We will be able to show the people of Sheffield how the Cathedral, one of only two medieval buildings in the city, has been improved from May, and at events during the year that will include the celebration of the centenary of the Diocese. We are also organising the official opening which will be this Autumn on Sunday, October 5.”

To mark The St George’s Day a heritage event is to be held on April 23, where parts of the Cathedral will be open to the public.

Some Easter services are also planned.
