Visiting Choirs

Guildford Cathedral welcomes good visiting choirs to sing Saturday Evensong throughout the year when there is not a concert or other event in the Cathedral that day. The Cathedral Choir take a 7-8 week holiday during the summer and 3 weeks before or after Easter; during choir holidays weekday Evensong and Sunday Services are sung by visiting choirs.

The Dean approves visiting choirs before a firm booking is made; if the choir has not sung in the Cathedral before, the Dean will need to take up references from other Cathedrals or listen to a recording of the choir.

The visiting choirs pack(PDF) (press here for link) gives full details of what is required before and during a service. All visiting choirs are required to comply with the Diocesan Child Protection Policy and have to submit a completed declaration form (found at the end of the pack) before they are allowed to sing in the Cathedral.
