Looking ahead to 2017

Sadly, after much thought and deliberation, we have decided for many reasons not to go ahead with the New Year Ball planned for January 14th .

However the 2017 festival in May is shaping up well, with an additional event to add to the three concerts on 5th, 6th and 7th May and the May Ball on Saturday May 13th.On Friday 5th May at 3.00pm a guided tour of Worcester Cathedral Library has been arranged as part of the festival. Our Cathedral Library, is reputed to be the second most important cathedral library in the country. It contains a collection of Medieval Manuscripts from Anglo Saxon times onward, including the Worcester Antiphon (c 1220).

(It should be noted that entry to the library is up a narrow spiral staircase of 46 steps, and is not suitable for the infirm or those with a heart condition.)
