Lunchtime concerts

Ripon Cathedral runs a series of free lunchtime concerts on Thursdays throughout the year. Preceded by a sandwich lunch at 1pm, these recitals start at 1.15pm and last approximately 35 minutes.  From September this time will move to 1.00-1.50, with the sandwich lunch available from 12.45.

Thursday is market day in Ripon and our concerts are a popular way to break a day out in the city.
