Membership Scheme

Lincoln Cathedral Membership Scheme

The Lincoln Cathedral Membership Scheme is an ideal way to engage with the Cathedral, and know that you are supporting its history, heritage and music. In much the same way as a membership of the National Trust or English heritage gives you a range of exclusive benefits and membership options, so too with the Lincoln Cathedral Membership Scheme.

Christmas 2023 – the last day for Christmas memberships to be sent out in the post is Sunday 17 December. We can provide collection from the Cathedral Shop until Thursday 21 December, please call 01522 561613 to arrange.

About Cathedral Membership

We have 3 membership levels for you to choose from, which means you have the flexibility to select a membership that best suits your need. You can find out more about the benefits* of each membership level below, and also set up a donation plan that works for you.

Membership starts from a donation of just £24 per year for an Associate Individual membership, so is an ideal treat for yourself, as well as a perfect gift for someone. Membership gives you complimentary admission, 10% discount in the cathedral shop and café, as well as access to behind the scenes tours and activities that we arrange especially for your members through the Member Experience scheme.

What’s more, you can rest assured knowing that your membership donation is directly supporting the Cathedral and its work.

We aim to despatch welcome packs within seven business days via Royal Mail 2nd class postage. Please call us on 01522 561613 if you need your pack sooner.
*all benefits are subject to availability, particularly on tours where numbers are limited for safety
