“This was an occasionally challenging, occasionally beautiful collection that always demanded serious contemplation—and we were in exactly the right place for that”.

Luke Leitch

“I am writing to you and Cathedral staff to express our deep thanks and appreciation for all your hard work last night.  The setting was perfect, as was the catering and drinks. Your staff made every effort to help and no request was refused. They were truly professional and made our special night so memorable.”

Richard Griffiths Architects

“Our event exceeded our expectations and certainly created the WOW factor.  Everyone complimented our choice of venue and thoroughly enjoyed themselves.  Food and service were exceptional but the star of the show was the Dean– what a speech!  Please forward my thanks to all who helped to make our 20th anniversary dinner so special!”
