Sanderstead Singers – Our itinerary until August 2020


Canterbury Cathedral - 17th to 23rd August 2020

Canterbury Cathedral is one of the oldest Christian structures in England and forms part of a World Heritage Site. The Cathedral was founded in 597 AD and was completely re-built and enlarged in 12th Century.

The present day structure dates from 14th Century and has evolved over time to the present Cathedral. The last changes were made in 1937 when the Christ Gate towers were replaced, and in 1990 when the statue of Christ was replaced with the current bronze sculpture. Work on the Cathedral is ongoing with a 5 year project, - 'The Canterbury Journey' - which started in 2016.

Music forms an integral part of the services at the Canterbury Cathedral. A combination of cathedral choristers and lay clerks sing at the services on a daily basis. Vistiting Choirs also have the opportunity to sing at Canterbury Cathedral, and Sanderstead Singers last sang there in August 2014.
