Thanks for the information about the Gaia display at the cathedral being on today 1st October .. driven down from Sheffield to finds it’s closed for the day for private do .. a place of worship closed for a folk festival … really ?
Great wasted trip .. so kind

Hi Ian.
I can understand how frustrating that must have been. As stated in the introduction the information was provided in good faith & we always recommend double checking details before travelling. I can see that Derby Cathedral has published more detailed guidance on their opening times since this blog post was last updated. I’ll incorporate that now. Unfortunately we are a very small team and have no capacity to find updates like this if the venue/organisers don’t contact us directly. Appreciate that doesn’t help your wasted journey but please do accept my apologies.
Kind regards,
