Current appeal

In September 2012, Winchester Cathedral launched a £20.5m capital fundraising appeal for conservation of the historic fabric and to transform its outreach and presence in the community.

Since 2012, the presbytery roof has been re-leaded and the presbytery high vault and 15th century stained glass have been restored to their former glory. The construction of the Wessex Learning Centre and the refurbishment of the Education Centre has greatly enhanced the quality of the Cathedral’s education and outreach programme to over 25,000 children annually from Hampshire and beyond, as well as enabling all-age learning.

Finally, the South Transept has been transformed into a fully accessible state-of-the-art exhibition experience over three levels, with greater physical access to the Mezzanine and Triforium floors via a new glass lift. The new and innovative exhibitions will re-energise the interpretation of Winchester Cathedral’s story and collections, with interactive displays and hands-on learning opportunities.
