Southwell Minster – Cathedral 140

Celebrating 140 years as a cathedral

This year, Southwell Minster celebrates 140 years as a cathedral. To mark the occasion, many special events are planned.

Events from February to July can be viewed in a special What’s On Guide.

A full calendar of special events for the year can be viewed on the Minster website.

The centrepiece of the celebration is a special 10-month exhibition, which explores over 1,000 years of history in 140 objects.
Each month we will showcase 14 objects from a period in our history, from the Romans to the present day. Every object will reveal a unique part of the Minster’s story and the history of the Cathedral, Gardens and Palace.
