Join us to sing, harmonise, promenade and let our voices soar in the glorious open space of Wells Cathedral and Chapter House led by Jane Harris, Director of Songways.
Explore the resonance of this ancient and sacred building with your singing voice, singing from end to end of the nave and moving between each other as we sing. Enjoy beautiful songs and harmonies taught by ear, and immerse yourself in the sound. Sing freely and improvise, held in the group sound and the exceptional acoustics. Open to all, no experience necessary.
