It’s an important night in the cathedral tonight, as we have the installation service for our new Dean, the Venerable Dermot Dunne.

Admission to the service is by ticket only, and we’re expecting a big crowd. There’ll be representatives from the diocese, and from across the southern province too – and a lot of extra seating has already been laid out to cope with the expected number of people.

Both the cathedral choir and girls choir are singing in tonight’s service at 8.00pm, which will an expanded form of Choral Evensong. Some of the music for the service was also chosen by the new dean.
