Exeter Cathedral - chorister parents evensong

Chorister parents evensong, Saturday 27th January 2024

Some of the present and past chorister parents sang evensong again this year, conducted by the Director of Music, Timothy Noon. The first such evensong took place in 2023. By popular demand of the parents, it returned this year! It is a fund-raising event for the Exeter Cathedral Choir Association.

New floor in the Quire - Cloisters extension

Work began after Easter to remove the 1960s stone flooring and concrete foundation beneath it in the Quire. It will be replaced by underfloor heating and a new marble floor. The work has been required to remedy a problem caused by damp - the 1960s concrete is trapping in ground water, which is causing structural problems in the East end of the cathedral. The new flooring will be permeable. It is planned to complete the first stage of the work by November 2023.

All services are now in the Nave.

Construction of the new Cloisters Gallery is also well on its way, with the walls mainly completed and the oak roof timbers being placed in position.
