Forthcoming events

We’re busy planning some exciting future events in 2024 – 25, including visits to Chichester and Ely Cathedrals, and a tour to the Netherlands. More on this to come! Meanwhile this October we are planning a concert in Lewes, featuring 20th century and contemporary British choral music. Details nearer the time.

Westminster Abbey, 13-14 August 2021

The Abbey were taking what they described as a ‘cautious’ approach – only sixteen singers permitted, single-file and masks on for processing, the men sitting two rows behind the women and no congregation allowed in the quire. It was a bit of a shame that our many family and friends who came…

Hoping to sing at Westminster Abbey

Nothing is certain these days. We are booked to sing Evensong at one of our favourite cathedrals, Westminster Abbey, on 13th – 14th August 2021, but are awaiting confirmation. Fingers crossed.

We’ll be back in 2021!

It’s been a quiet year, having to cancel our trips to sing at both Westminster Abbey and Ripon cathedral. But we have plans for 2021, so we’re looking forward to singing together again soon.

Singing at Winchester Cathedral next weekend

We’ll be singing the services at Winchester on Saturday 29th – Sunday 30th October. We’ve just had the second of our rehearsals and the music is all sounding lovely.
