St Albans Cathedral

Our usual venue is St Albans Cathedral. To sing in such a magnificent setting is awe inspiring, and to hear the cathedral filled with sound is an unforgettable experience.


Royal Albert Hall

In 2013 and again in 2015, John Rutter invited us, together with the Cathedral Choristers, to sing in his hugely popular Christmas Concerts. In 2015 we repeated the concert in the Fairfield Halls, Croydon, one of the finest concert halls in London.
