Partnership programme


Southwell Minster Choral Outreach Programme

Contact person:

Like so many other projects, this 12 year-old programme providing 4 x 30 minute sessions each half term in primary schools, had to stop under lockdown. ‘A major concert to celebrate the completion of our Heritage Lottery funded refurbishment had to be postponed for a year because of Covid’. A competition for a new song, won by a Yr 9 girl at Southwell Minster School, will be videoed and used to engage local children.  The music and education team work together to produce resources.

In the past the musicians have collaborated with the Education Department, with animateurs leading singing sessions for the annual KS1 & KS2 Time Travelling weeks at The Minster. Other partnership work included a Brownies’ residential week-end, weekly input at a day nursery and help for a group of teenage choral scholars from a church choir.

Fingers crossed you will be up and running again soon, team Southwell!
