Once described as “the fairest in the land”, Lincoln boasts one of the finest Cathedral organs and one of the great examples of the work of ‘Father’ Henry Willis.

Maintaining this incredible organ and the Cathedral’s other three organs is an on-going task. The regular tuning that is required to ensure the musical excellence, for which Lincoln is known, costs more than £3,000 each time. Adopting a pipe at Lincoln Cathedral makes for a perfect gift or memorial and is an ideal way to support the on-going conservation and restoration of the organs. Pipes are available from just £25 and there are a variety of adoption opportunities for you to choose from. Find out more below:

Your support is greatly appreciated and goes a long way in helping us to raise the funds needed to continue to ensure future generations can enjoy the sound of these Cathedral organs.

When you adopt a pipe, you will receive an Adoption Pack containing a delightful image of the Father Willis Organ, an adoption certificate and a dedication certificate in either your or the recipient's name. These will be sent out on the next working day following your adoption.

Did you know?
If you adopt a pipe that is £150 or more, you will also be offered a complimentary Fellow membership of Lincoln Cathedral for a year - usually worth £120. To find out more about the benefits of this membership, please click here.
