Winchester Cathedral Concerts Announced

Rye international jazz and blues festival is delighted to announce two exceptional and truly unique concerts at the iconic and historic setting of Winchester Cathedral in Hampshire this late October. Fifteen centuries of English history lie behind the massive Cathedral you see today. It stands at the heart of historic Winchester, once the seat of Anglo-Saxon and Norman royal power, on the site of an early Christian church. It’s been a place of worship ever since. The magnificence of the Cathedral make this a perfect venue to hold these two unmissable concerts. Winchester Cathedral Is A Landmark, Iconic Venue Situated Within The Heart Of This Historic City. Demand for these concerts will be high so we encourage you to book early to avoid disappointment.
