The Abbey remains open for worship and you are welcome to join us at our daily Eucharist service if you are able to travel here safely within current government guidelines.
However, for the time being we are unable to open the Abbey and St Margaret’s Church for general visiting.
Discover the Abbey’s awe-inspiring grand organ at our Summer Organ Festival each July and August.
Hear the magnificent five-manual Harrison & Harrison instrument come to life at our Tuesday evening concerts, which feature the Abbey’s own organists and leading performers from around the world, and find out more about the ‘king of instruments’ at our Discovery Events.
We regret that owing to the continuing COVID-19 coronavirus crisis, the 2020 festival (including performances by Vincent Dubois and Thomas Trotter) will not be able to take place as originally scheduled. We are currently working with the artists to try and reschedule their performances for the next edition of the festival and we will publish details here as soon as they are available.
It’s very hard not to be enthusiastic working at the Abbey. If this place doesn’t make you smile I don’t know what will.
