ONLINE CONCERT ​- Premiering at 7:00pm

In a Southern Cathedrals Festival first, all the Three Cathedrals’ Choirs have recorded music here in Winchester for an online concert. The programme, which is hosted by Aled Jones, will also contain a series of short films about individual stories of the last year in the Cathedrals and the hope and joy of a full return.
