Event description

Description

Our origins date back to 1655 when a group of sons of clergymen gathered for a service in St Paul’s Cathedral and a collection was taken for destitute clergy and their families.

Our Festival Service has continued each year since then and is now in its 365th year. It is an opportunity to give thanks to God for the work of the charity, which is to provide assistance to Anglican clergy and their families in times of need.

The music for the 365th choral festival will be provided by the choir of St Paul's Cathedral, led by Andrew Carwood, and the choirs of Canterbury Cathedral and Coventry Cathedral. The address will be from the Dean of Gloucester, the Very Reverend Stephen Lake.

The Festival provides an occasion for bringing together representatives from the Church, City, commerce, public life and our supporters. It will be attended by the Lord Mayor and Sheriffs, Aldermen, Bishops, representatives from the City Livery Companies and many others.
