Date:3rd November 2019


Location:High St, Oxford OX1 4AW

The Chapel of The Queen’s College, Oxford is celebrating its 300th anniversary this year. To coincide with the anniversary of the Chapel’s consecration on All Saints’ Day 1719, the College is putting on a programme of services, concerts and events celebrating the history, architecture and music of the Chapel.

There will be a commemorative service of Solemn Evensong on Sunday 3 November at 5.30pm with the Archbishop of York, Dr John Sentamu. Evensong will be sung by the College Choir, with additional prayers adapted from the original consecration service of 1719. The service is open to the public.

There will also be a study afternoon on the following Saturday, 9 November, with speakers including the Revd Canon Dr Andrew Braddock of Gloucester Cathedral, a specialist on Georgian liturgy and spirituality. This will be followed by a concert of music by Bach and Handel, sung by the College Choir alongside period instrument ensemble Instruments of Time & Truth. The study day is free (but registration is advisable); tickets for the concert are £25.
