We are always pleased to welcome visiting choirs to sing services at the Abbey when our choir is having a well earned rest during holidays or on Wednesdays or Saturdays throughout the year.
The Milton Organ
The Abbey’s main organ, the Milton, is due for its twenty year service. This will be carried out during January, February, March and April 2018.
This means the organ will be out of action during that period, as will all the stalls on the south side of the choir due to the scaffolding required. The stalls on the north side of the choir will remain usable and a digital organ will be installed to do the Milton’s work.
In May 2018 we therefore look forward to a newly cleaned Milton, together with a number of revisions and improvements, being ready for use. During this time it will not be possible for visiting choirs to sing Choral Evensong on Wednesday evenings.
If you are interested in bringing your choir to Tewkesbury Abbey please call Philippa Shaw on 01684 856141 or by email email@example.com. Philippa will be able to advise you of available dates.

30 & 31 December 2017
11 & 12 August*
18 & 19 August*
27 & 28 October
