Become a Friend

As well as making a contribution to the future of this great Cathedral, by becoming a Friend of St Paul's you'll also receive many exciting benefits.

As a Friend of St Paul’s you will enjoy free admission to the Cathedral, reserved seats at a number of annual Cathedral events and a quarterly e-newsltter to keep you updated with Cathedral news. Friends also enjoy a 10% discount on purchases in the Cathedral shop. There is always an allocation of tickets made available to the Friends for Handel’s Messiah, one of our most popular concerts of the year and a sell-out event. 
Each summer there is a Friends' Festival with an AGM, Choral Evensong, a short recital by the Choristers and a reception. Other social events are arranged for the Friends from time to time.

Today, there are some 3,000 Friends who provide both financial and practical support to St Paul’s. The majority of our Friends are UK-based, but others come from 25 different countries. Around 130 of our Friends are Working Friends; volunteers who give their time to welcome visitors, sell guidebooks and answer visitors' questions. A few of these become guides, taking a six-month training course and passing an examination before they start guiding.
