I’m writing to let you know about a free singing opportunity on 18th May. As well as conducting Mansfield Choral Society, I also work at Nottingham Cathedral as the Youth Choir Director, alongside Director of Music, Alex Patterson, who many of you met at the recent ‘Come and Sing’ day.

We are running a fundraising HYMNATHON and Gala Concert on 18th May at the Cathedral as part of the celebrations for its 175th Anniversary this year, and to help cover costs for taking our youth Choir to Lourdes in July as part of the Diocesan pilgrimage, where they will provide the music for masses alongside the Cathedral Choir. Three pieces in the concert will be performed by a Massed Choir made up of local singers, and there will also be lots of hymns!

If you are interested in finding out more and signing up, please go to:


It’s free, and everyone is welcome – the more the merrier! We would love to see you there.
