We do try to keep costs to the bare minimum, but we do, of course, have to stay afloat!

Come and Sing Handel’s Messiah

Anglican Cathedral, Southwark

The Friends of Southwark Cathedral together with the Royal School of Church Music invite you to join a Come and Sing event and perform the choruses of Handel’s masterpiece Messiah, Parts One and Two.

Under the directorship of Peter Wright, Director of Music at Southwark Cathedral, our gathered choir will rehearse during the afternoon. Following a break for much needed refreshments, participants will perform in front of an audience in the nave of this glorious Cathedral. You do not have to be part of a choir or sung in public before as all levels of ability are more than welcome to attend - the more the merrier!

The performance will begin at 4.45pm and will last an hour. The cost of taking part is £10 and tickets can be purchased from the Friends of Southwark Cathedral.
