The history of this visit: our booking to visit Portsmouth Cathedral for a week in 2020 – 24-30 August was sadly cancelled. The money we might have allocated to bursaries in support of those unable to pay the full costs was sent to the Friends of Cathedral Music as a contribution to their Cathedral Choirs’ Emergency Fund.

But the good news is that we were offered a week in 2021 instead, after Salisbury were not able to host us.  We are very grateful to Sachin Gunga and the clergy, vergers and musical team at Portsmouth Cathedral for looking after us and helping us to put a rewarding week of music making in unpromising circumstances.
