The Chapel is a meeting place for independent minds and home to a diverse programme of social, creative, educational and religious events that bring people of all ages together to experience this unique setting.

There is a lively summer programme of musical and literary performances by local and internationally acclaimed artists being planned  – from early music on authentic instruments to folk and contemporary music; from spoken word to operatic arias.

Workshops, artist residencies and collaborations in this evocative setting, stimulate the creation of new site-specific works.


The Chapel will be open to the public from 01 April and then on Saturday and Bank Holiday afternoons from 2pm to 4.30pm. Anyone wishing to arrange a private or group visit outside these times should contact us.

The Chapel holds two ecumenical services annually and remains a place of worship and religious ceremony. It is available for celebrations, commemorations, memorial events and dedications. The Chapel can be hired for weddings and blessings and is licensed for same sex marriages. 


Our 2024 Summer Programme is being finalised now and will be available shortly.
