On Saturday November 10th 2018, to mark the centenary of the end of the First World War, Ripon Choral Society is performing Benjamin Britten's War Requiem in Ripon Cathedral. This magnificent work is on an epic scale, and is very expensive to put on. As a fundraiser to promote the concert, and to allow us all to reflect on the events of 2014-18, a group of Ripon Choral Society members will cycle the entire length of the Western Front, from the Belgian Coast to the Swiss border, in 8 days of cycling, May 8th-16th 2018. The route map can be seen here. We'll call in at monuments, museums and cemeteries along the way. We'll be blogging about our experience as we go. Please support us by sponsoring the cycle ride. 80 of the proceeds will go to Ripon Choral Society, 20 to the Royal British Legion.
Ripon Choral Society is a thriving and friendly community choir under the musical directorship of John Dunford. We are a large choir of about 150 singing members. We rehearse on a Wednesday night and we perform a varied repertoire of choral music, usually 4 times a year in Ripon Cathedral.
I understand that I can opt out of these communications at any time.

Anger is #wonderful. It keeps you going. I'm angry about bankers. About the government.
