The Chester Cathedral Development Trust

The Chester Cathedral Development Trust was estalished to assist delivery in the purpose built Cathedral Song School. This was officially opened in 2005 and the building is a fantastic example of the creative use of a heritage building that complements the Cathedral and its surroundings. 

The Development Trust remains active and acts as a catalyst to collect donations from invdividuals and organisations who wish to invest in the maintenance of the Cathedral and its monastic buildings.

The Trust is a registered charity (257123)
