In a harmonious tradition, the Choir of Bradford Cathedral embarks on its regular ‘Safari Evensongs,’ venturing to local churches for musical delights.

This Sunday, 25th February, marks the initiation of the 2024 series, with the Girls Choir making its way to St Michael and All Angels on Haworth Main Street.

Revd Oli Preston, Rector of Haworth and Cross Roads, says; “We are very excited to welcome Bradford Cathedral Choir to St Michael and All Angels’, Haworth Parish Church. As ‘the Bronte Church’ we have many people come to connect with the cultural heritage here, so it is wonderful to host Safari Evensong as another cultural highlight for visitors and locals to engage with.

“Evensong is one of the jewels of the Anglican tradition – a spacious, beautiful, peaceful space to encounter the presence of God. We have memories of having a choir here, and would love to explore opportunities for regularly gathering people for choral singing here again.”

Anthony Gray, Assistant Director of Music at Bradford Cathedral, says; “’We are delighted to be continuing our long running series of ‘Safari Evensongs’ into 2024. The girl choristers are hugely looking forward to visiting Haworth at the end of February, singing music by Philip Moore, Ed Jones and Thomas Ebdon.

“Our Safari Evensong events are both a great opportunity to showcase our fabulous choir in parishes around our Diocese, as well as being a brilliant learning opportunity for our young singers, who I know will love being part of this service in Haworth.”

All are welcome to Choral Evensong at St Michael and All Angels, Haworth Main Street, BD22 8DP, on Sunday, 25th February at 3:30 pm.
