Southwark Cathedral Choir is a traditional cathedral choir of men and boys. Although there is no choir school and the boys go to a variety of different schools throughout London, they meet at the Cathedral several times a week to rehearse and to sing services. They maintain a consistently high standard and have performed in many venues here and internationally, and regularly broadcast services on the radio.
Recordings of these remarkable voices are on sale in the Cathedral shop.
Wine and mince pies will be available in the interval and the Cathedral Refectory will be open for refreshments and light meals before the concert.
This concert is unsuitable for children under the age of five.

When & Where
Southwark Cathedral, which is the oldest gothic church in London, lies on the South Bank of the River Thames close to London Bridge on a site occupied by a Church for over one thousand years. The main structure of today's church was built between 1220 and 1420.
The Cathedral is also the mother church of the Anglican Diocese of Southwark and has seen all history throughout the ages past. As a result we welcome everyone from any background.
