Cantamus 50th Anniversary Weekend

Cantamus 50th Anniversary Weekend

12th, 13th, 14th October 2018 – save the dates

2018 sees a major milestone in the History of Cantamus as we celebrate a half Century since our beloved Pamela started Cantamus in 1968. Plans are already well advanced and we have an enthusiastic Committee working to make this an extra special event.

We are planning several events, with the high point being a concert in The Albert Hall, Nottingham, on Saturday 13th October 2018.  There will have been over 500 “girls” in Cantamus in the 50 years of its existence and we are hoping that we can amass a chorus of 500 voices for this very special concert.

Please keep the dates free in your diaries as we would love to see you all over the weekend. The plans so far are to have

  • an informal social event on Friday 12th October in the evening,
  • a special lunch for all ex members on Saturday 13th October followed by the afternoon rehearsal and tea with the current choirs before the concert at the Albert Hall
  • and finally a family event on the morning of Sunday 14th October with a traditional Sunday lunch to follow.



We want to give everyone the flexibility to be part of this very special weekend and having several events means that you can choose which events you wish to attend. We will be updating you all over the coming months with how the plans are progressing and the cost of the various events.

To All EX Cantamus girls, could you email Kate Lake on, to say if you are considering coming to the events. It would also be useful if you have any contact details of friends who have not had contact with the choir over the last few years and you know would be interested to receive information about the weekend. Again please forward these to the Cantamus email account above.

We look forward to celebrating with you all in October 2018
