Historic Tour of Westminster Abbey with Purcell Singers
Saturday 17 November 2018

After supper in the Cellarium Restaurant at Westminster Abbey we assemble in the cloisters for a welcome by a member of the Purcell Club.  We will then move into the Abbey and take seats in the Nave for the commencement of the tour when the first piece of sacred music is sung.


The speaker describes the history and architecture of the Abbey, moving from one location of interest to the next.  At various points there is a pause for members of the Purcell Club to sing suitable musical items.

The Purcell Club is a male voice choir formed predominantly from members of Westminster Abbey Old Choristers’ Association. The singers give their services in order to put on these tours and all the profits from ticket sales go to support the Abbey and a range of small charities.
