The Sanctuary at Derby Cathedral is now open following an extensive refurbishment!
The refurbishment saw the previous bookshop and café merge into one business, creating a light and airy space for customers to enjoy, together with a new range of locally produced gifts and products of which at least 80% of the gifts have come from Derby and Derbyshire. We are stocking chocolate to candles, gin to vegan friendly marshmellows and some quirky and different gifts which you may not generally find on the High Street. We have some very talented suppliers in the city and county and Derby Cathedral are proud to support these businesses.
A fresh, new menu is also available, created and prepared by our qualified chef using locally sourced ingredients.
The Sanctuary at Derby Cathedral is also open on Sundays, serving traditional Sunday lunches and delicious hot and cold desserts. We are also open for key events held in the Cathedral so people can experience pre-event dining before attending an event in the Cathedral – an ‘evening out’ experience in very pleasant and unique surroundings.
The main purpose of the business is to financially contribute towards the work of the Cathedral, so customers can be assured that every penny spent in the shop will, in some way, help support the important work the Cathedral does in working with homeless people of the city, those with mental health issues and generally in keeping the doors open for everyone.
The Sanctuary at Derby Cathedral is open 6 days a week.
