Blackburn Cathedral Centenary

Welcome to the centenary of Blackburn Cathedral in 2026 - a hundred years in the making and we’ve got big plans

2026 will mark a significant moment in the life of Blackburn Cathedral as we celebrate our centenary. We have exciting plans to celebrate the past, the present and as we look to the future.

We are planning a range of activities to mark this period in the rich history of our Cathedral and these will include celebratory events and special projects with community engagement at the heart of everything we do.

Our plans to develop a year of truly memorable events is already underway and we are busy working on other ways to help mark such an important milestone. We intend to look back on the past one hundred years and also work towards ensuring a legacy that lasts for the next century too.

How you can get involved:

We are committed to marking the centenary in many different ways culminating in a year-long celebration of the life and history of the Cathedral – and we need your help.

We intend to reflect all aspects of Cathedral life and it is hoped that the Cathedral family and wider community can work together on this prestigious campaign.

Your support and collaboration will undoubtedly make the journey to 2026 and beyond even more enriching for us all.

If you have artifacts, memorabilia or stories to share, we’d love to hear from you.
