GOF 2020 recitalists announced!

We are delighted to announce the line-up of Grand Organ Festival recitalists for 2020! Our seven recitalists come from around the UK and Europe, and we are really looking forward to welcoming them all to Westminster Cathedral. Dates and timings are below, along with ticket details.

Change of date for November 2020 GOF recital

Please note that we have had to change the date of the November GOF recital to WEDNESDAY 11 NOVEMBER at 7.30pm, because of a clash with an external event taking place on the Cathedral's piazza on 25 November which would have rendered a concert rather disrupted. Apologies for any inconvenience caused by this date change.
