200th Birthday Celebration at Evensong

Date:
Sunday 26th November

Time:
15:00 - 16:00


Description:The Lord Lieutenant and the High Sheriff of Somerset, together with the Dean of Wells, have the pleasure of inviting you to a 200th birthday celebration at Wells Cathedral on Sunday 26th November. Choral Evensong at 3pm and birthday tea in the transepts will follow. The Dean writes: “When I discovered that both Annie Maw and Richard Hickmet were celebrating their 70th birthdays very soon (140 years!), it seemed a promising idea to add my own forthcoming 60th birthday, (200 years!), and to have a joint celebration here at the end of November. Annie and Richard, modestly but very kindly, agreed. So we have pleasure in together inviting you to a celebration here at Wells Cathedral. At the service there will be a chance to support Singing for Syria – a charity which helps vulnerable people affected by the conflict there – and the work of the Cathedral. RSVP to Paula Denyer by 18th November: Telephone: 674483 or Email: uk. Choral Evensong is held in the Quire of Wells Cathedral and is sung by Wells Cathedral Choir during term time. This is open to the public and all are welcome.
