We cordially invite you to our glamorous one-off Gala cinema evening this October which will also raise money for Carlisle Cathedral’s exciting Fratry Project.

We warmly welcome you to our drinks reception. As our special guest, you will be served canapes and welcome drinks on arrival in our main hall, where you can enjoy live jazz music from the fabulous Shades of Jazz before the film.

Dress code: Glamorous

About Downton Abbey: Based on the much-loved TV show of the same name and featuring many original cast members, such as Maggie Smith, Michelle Dockery, and Hugh Bonneville, follow the dramatic lives of the aristocratic Crawley family in this historical feature, not to be missed.

Our Gala cinema evening with Downton Abbey will help Carlisle Cathedral to bring its historic Fratry building back to life. One of the most significant heritage buildings in the North West will finally be open and accessible to all – enabling the Cathedral to offer an exciting new programme of teaching and learning, arts, culture and other events. Standing alongside the newly refurbished Fratry will also be a stunning new café with spectacular views of the Cathedral. Find out more at
