Rock legend Ian Anderson of Jethro Tull will be performing a Christmas Jethro Tull benefit concert at Chester Cathedral at 7.30pm on Saturday 1 December 2018.

Anderson and his band plus, plus the odd surprise guest and our very own Nave Choir will perform some of the more festive numbers, old and new, from the prodiguos Jethro Tull back catalogue, combining Christmas tradition with a rather more unusual repertoire for a cathedral setting.

"Whether your Christmas is a secular affair of gift-giving and family togetherness or a more wonderful recognition of one of the two biggest days in Christian calendar, join us for some uplifting Christmas spirit, music, readings and maybe even a prayer or two" says Anderson.

"The bringing together of people of all backgrounds, cultures and faiths in this way is possible, perhaps, only under the auspices of modern Christianity, especially the Anglican Church. So, if we can help to draw people in to these beautiful and historic building to savour just a little of the spirit of Christmas, it seems like a worth while effort" adds Anderson.

We are extremely grateful to Ian and his team who are donating the profits from the concert to the Cathedral Organ Fund!
