The Brigantes Winter Gathering

Usually hosted in a Northern Cathedral City, the Winter Gathering provides an opportunity for Liverymen and guests to meet together in the run up to Christmas. 

Held in early/mid December, the Winter Gathering commences in the afternoon with the Association’s Annual General Meeting of Subscribing Members, followed by a reception, early evening supper and Christmas Concert in the Cathedral Nave. 

The Winter Gathering in Bradford for example began with the AGM and supper in the magnificent Victorian Bradford Club, following which we moved a couple of hundred yards to Bradford Cathedral for the Christmas Concert given by the Cathedral Choir and the world famous Black Dyke Brass Band.

Other Cathedral cities in which the Brigantes Winter Gathering has been held include Carlisle, York, Durham, Chester and Ripon.
