Norwich Cathedral will be welcoming students of RSCM International Summer School for a couple of events during their week at Belsey Bridge Conference Centre from 5 to 11 August 2019.

The Royal School of Church Music offers a week experiencing worship through music from the 14th to the 21st century, with excellent tuition from leaders at Belsey Bridge Conference Centre.

The programme features visits to Norwich Cathedral and shared choral Eucharist with the Royal School of Church Music's Millennium Youth Choir, during their week’s residency at the Cathedral, on Sunday 11 August.

All are welcome, from singers and musicians to clergy, or anyone with an enthusiasm to learn more about Church Music.
