2019 UK Choir Tour – Gloucester & Chichester
The St Peter & St Simon-the-Apostle choir is thrilled to be going back to England to sing services in these two historic cathedrals. Our last tour was such a rewarding and enjoyable experience a number of us felt afterwards that we should start immediately planning the next. We plan to travel on Monday August 12th via London, then immediately on to Gloucester for 6 days, then Chichester, returning on Monday August 26th.
We will be singing a total of 13 services including daily evensong and Mattins, as well as Eucharist and Evensong services on Sundays. The schedule will also include days off for travel and sightseeing.
Gloucester is in south- west England near the Welsh border, on the bank of the River Severn, bordered by the Cotswolds to the east. Chichester is located in the south of England just over 10 km from the coast. Over the next year and a half, we’ll be organizing some fun activities and events to help raise funds for the tour. As on our last tour, interested singers, partners and travel companions are welcome to join us, keeping in mind that there will be some significant walking distances between our lodging, the cathedral and rehearsal locations, and some of the singing spaces are not mobility-accessible
