Celebrating 25 years of Girl Choristers at York Minster

A Service of Thanksgiving

Scroll to explore

A special service of Choral Evensong on Sunday 10 July will give thanks for 25 years of girl choristers at York Minster.

In 1997, after an energetic campaign, York Minster introduced girl choristers into daily worshipping life, following the initial breakthrough for girls at Salisbury Cathedral in 1991. To mark the anniversary, all former girl choristers are being invited to come back to sing with the current girl choristers and adult singers of York Minster for this celebratory service.

All former girl choristers of York Minster are warmly invited to sing at this special celebratory service.  Please email for more information.

The guest preacher will be the Bishop of Whitby, Paul Ferguson, who was Precentor of York Minster 25 years ago when the first group of girl choristers gave their debut performance at the Minster.

The service will take place at 4pm on Sunday 10 July. All are welcome, no booking required. The service will also be livestreamed via our YouTube channel and this page.
