Old Choristers’ Association

Were you a chorister at Southwell Minster? We are re-launching the Old Choristers' Association, and would love to keep in touch with you to share details of forthcoming Old Choristers' events, and news of our current Cathedral Choir. Membership to the association is free, so please email oldchoristers@southwellminster.org.uk to join.

Members of the association will receive occasional newsletters with features on former choristers, interesting articles and news from the Minster, plus an invitation to the annual Old Choristers' Evensong and drinks reception in the Minster.

Above all, we at the Minster want to keep in touch with our alumni, so please send us an email and let us know what you are up to, and what you would like from your association.
