A newly composed setting of the Jubilate by Philip Stopford has been commissioned for this service and a new Processional Cross for The Chorister School, designed and made by Simon Pattison, will be dedicated. The preacher will be Terry Waite CBE.

In the evening a Celebration Ball will be held for all those with an association with The Chorister School.
