A final service has taken place at Leicester Cathedral before major work to restore and renovate the building takes place.

The work is expected to last around a year and a half and the Cathedral will welcome visitors again in Autumn 2023.

Seven years ago, King Richard III was reinterred in the Cathedral  after his remains were in a council car park. His tomb will not be disturbed during the refurbishment.

Although the Cathedral will be closed to the public,  services elsewhere will continue.
