“Advance to Chester Cathedral…”

… if you pass Go, play Monopoly”

Chester Cathedral has this week welcomed an extra special arrival to its gift shop – its very own bespoke edition of Monopoly!

The Chester Cathedral edition of Monopoly offers something a little different, as the family-favourite property trading game has been thoroughly adapted to the cathedral.

The special edition board game is unique as it also comes with six exclusive tokens – including a jolly monk, goose, and cathedral tower.

Rev Dr Barry Wilson, vice dean at Chester Cathedral, noted: “We are exceptionally proud of our very own edition of Monopoly.

“I am very sure that our congregation, Cestrians and all of our visitors will love the game, and thoroughly enjoy buying parts of the cathedral over-and-over again.”

He added: “The cathedral’s very own Monopoly was the idea of a member of our team, and then developed by our shop manager with the game-makers, so our heart and our passion are very much a part of this game.”

Chester Cathedral Monopoly is available now from the Chester Cathedral gift shop.
