Old Choristers Association

Former choristers of Peterborough Cathedral are invited to become members of the Peterborough Cathedral Old Choristers Association.

Formed in 1910, the objects of the OCA are to:

a) establish and maintain links between old choristers;

b) encourage the members to continue to participate in the life of the Cathedral.

Newsletter

The annual Christmas newsletter, compiled by Tim Hurst-Brown (Chairman), continues to provide news of the association, the cathedral, and former choristers/lay clerks/organists to members all over the world.

The latest issue of the newsletter can be found here: OCA Newsletter 2017.

Reunions

Peterborough Cathedral Old Choristers’ Association currently boasts over 400 members, and meets each September for the Annual Reunion.  In addition to making new contacts and reuniting old friends, the day involves singing Choral Evensong with the Cathedral Choir, attending the AGM, and enjoying the Reunion Dinner in the evening.

There is also an opportunity to sing Eucharist or Evensong on 27th December each year before the Old Petriburgians’ Association Reunion at the Brewery Tap.
