Choral Evensong at Chester Cathedral, Wednesday 27th February 2019 

The Chapel Choir are in particularly stunning form at the moment, and there is a wonderful opportunity to enjoy hearing them perform in one of the most beautiful medieval buildings in the country on Wednesday 27th February. The Service of Choral Evensong in Chester Cathedral promises to be a very special occasion, and the Choir are very much hoping that as many parents, guardians and friends of Shrewsbury School as possible will come and support them.  The service begins at 5:30pm and will be followed by a reception of drinks and canapés (6:30 – 8:00pm), hosted by the Headmaster and senior staff. 

Supporters’ Coach will run from Shrewsbury to Chester, departing Alington Hall and returning directly following the reception. Seats are available at £10 per person and must be booked in advance.

Please email to reserve your place(s) for the Evensong, reception, and coach if required.
