English Arts Chorale



Join us for an exhilarating day singing the incomparable Requiem by Verdi, under the inspiring leadership of the internationally-acclaimed conductor and director Mark Wigglesworth.

This is the start of our preparation for the performance, entirely from memory, in the Queen Elizabeth Hall on London's South Bank. The EAC last sang it there in 2010 in our 30th anniversary season. If you would like to join us for the 2020 Verdi Challenge, you can read more here.

Parking & Access

There are two parking bays for the disabled by the lych gate in Chart Lane, and a slightly sloping uneven path up to the west door of the church. No steps into the church, but a few bumps over the threshhold into a flat seating area in the nave. There is a Disabled toilet on the same level, but it is working.
