This year, and every five years afterwards, every parish is required to undertake a complete re-write of its Electoral Roll. This means that all members must re-apply to be on the Electoral Roll this year. Anyone from the previous year’s list who does not re-apply will be removed.
Click the link below to download an Electoral Roll form and either email it to [email protected] or print out the form and bring it to church to return to one of the clergy.
For more information about the Electoral Roll, to download the form as a Word document, as well as links to the Church in Wales’ Electoral Roll Guidance Document and Privacy Notice, please click here.
Llandaff Open Doors 2020 is here!
Each year the Friends of Llandaff Cathedral organise a series of events as part of CADW’s Open Doors event, taking people inside special places across Llandaff that normally wouldn’t be seen by visitors. This year’s event was cancelled but we’re delighted to have been able to create this virtual open doors event to bring you as authentic an experience as possible.
After watching the videos you may wish to learn even more about Llandaff Cathedral. A new Cathedral Guide Book was published in February to mark our 900th anniversary, written by Cathedral Archivist Dr John Kenyon, and you can purchase a copy for just £5 by clicking here.

Teaching children about their Cathedral is something we particularly enjoy doing, and we can’t wait to welcome schools back for visits. For children who are able to visit the Cathedral, we are excited to reveal our new Children’s Discovery Trail Guide to Llandaff Cathedral, which has been kindly drawn up by the Arts Society.
There are question sheets and an answer sheet for an accompanying adult (so you can pretend to know it all already!). There will be copies at the back of the Cathedral to borrow which are laminated so that they can be cleaned after each use.
If you would like to print your own to bring with you, just click the links below to download the Questions and Answers sheets.
