Despite the snow, the audience was larger than expected and the piece was very well received. This is the start of our ‘Cuthbert pilgramage’, continuing with visits to four primary schools and ending at Durham Cathedral on Friday 8 Feb. Tickets are still available from the Durham Vocal Festival website.
