Northleach Benefice is putting together a special Children’s Choir for the Jubilee celebrations in June.
Children aged between 6 and 16 are called to ‘Rise up and serve’ by singing in performances around the local area over the Jubilee weekend.
They will perform on Thursday 2 June in Compton Abdale and on Jubilee Sunday, 5 June at Northleach’s street party. The Benefice is also looking for bell ringers aged 11 plus (the deadline to register interest is 9 May). No bell ringing skills are needed as full training will be provided.
