Lincolnshire choir performs 'Flash Mob' in London

26 August 2015

St Wulfram's church choir have performed an impromptu flash mob at the Tate Modern in London. 

Choir master, Tim Williams, arranged for the choir to sing the short piece in the Tate Modern's Turbine Hall, which was met by great applause.

The choir are currently on residency at St Paul's Cathedral, after being invited to sing for a week following their last trip to St Paul's in 2013. They are the only parish choir to be given this opportunity in 2015.

Father Stuart Craddock, from St Wulfram's, is immensely proud of the group. "I'm incredibly proud of them, they are a hugely talented group of people, who add so much to our worship and mission," said Stuart.

"The choir is a non-auditioning choir which achieves outstanding results! We would like to thank the Rotary Club of Grantham Swimarathon for their grant, which has helped fund what for many will be a once in a lifetime experience; particularly for the youngsters who will really have something very special to tell once they are back at school."

The choir will return on Friday after a hugely successful week, to start an extremely busy term. The choir have performed at other Cathedrals, including York Minster, Ely, Canterbury, Peterborough, Lincoln, Salisbury, and Durham.

Next year they will have a residency at Canterbury Cathedral with an extended tour of Northern France, visiting St Wulfram's Abbeville, Rouen Cathedral and the Abbey of St Wandrille where the relics of St Wulfram are kept.
