New Spaces

Footprint will give us new rooms and facilities that will be inclusive and provide excellent hospitality.

All areas of the Abbey will be more accessible, providing modern meeting, catering and toilet facilities.

Footprint will provide a programme of activities that appeals to a wide cross-section of people. There will be a dedicated Learning Centre and an education programme for visiting school groups. There will also be new tours and activity days for families and others to enjoy together.

The Abbey is committed to being a place for the city and the church to gather at moments of celebration, crisis and decision. The new spaces created will provide a stunning venue for wider church, educational and civic events, as well as concerts, exhibitions and so much more. The development will help to integrate the Abbey with the city and surrounding area.
