The Southern Cathedrals Festival brings together the choirs of Chichester, Salisbury and Winchester, offering sacred choral and organ music performed to the very highest standard.
This year, the long-standing choral tradition has undergone a digital transformation with the Festival set to premiere online for the first time ever. Alongside this, a series of short films will launch which tell the story of SCF and capture an exclusive look at the life of contemporary choristers.

Everyday between the 9th and 16th July, a new film will be released telling the story of SCF and providing an exclusive look at the life of contemporary choristers.
#1 Meet Canon Andy Trenier who takes us on a tour of this year’s host cathedral, as he reflects on the challenges of last year and looks to the future.
#2 Richard Seal, who was one of the team responsible for the resurgence of the concert in the 1960s, shows us his SCF programme collection.
#3 Verity, Head Girl chorister at Winchester Cathedral, talks about the mission to recruit new members before her time in the choir comes to an end.
#4 Steve Abbott, Lay Vicar at Salisbury Cathedral, reminisces with friends about his memories of previous Southern Cathedrals Festivals.
#5 Mark Draper, Lay Vicar at Chichester Cathedral, talks about how the pandemic allowed him to reevaluate his priorities and follow his passion for choral singing.
#6 Batman and Robin, Luke Skywalker & Princess Leia. Now, add Shane and Sarah to that list. Meet the dynamic duo at Winchester Cathedral and listen to their stunning duet.
#7 Meet Fiona Brockhurst a self-confessed SCF superfan who has musical bones! She first picked up the French horn because there was one lying around at her school, and she hasn’t stopped playing since.
