An inaugural Evensong followed by a reception to thank and remember ex-choristers of Ripon Cathedral takes place later this year.

The service, which will become an annual event, takes place at the cathedral on Sunday, October 19, at 5.30pm.

The cathedral hopes lots of former choristers will come to the service and stay for refreshments afterwards.

The Dean of Ripon, the Very Rev John Dobson, said: “This service is our chance as a cathedral to pay tribute to the contribution which choristers have made and continue to make.

“As part of the service, a wreath will be laid in remembrance of those choristers who are no longer with us.”
