St Gregorys Bedale


The churches in the benefice have a fine and varied musical repertoire which spans many centuries of church music.

St Gregory's is also the home of the Bedale Festival Choir with it's fine and distinguished heritage.

Each Sunday the choir leads Eucharistic worship at St Gregory's and on the third Sunday each month leads our evensong service.  From time to time these are particularly celebratory as we hold a special Choral evensong. The choir is also available to sing at Weddings and special events. For more information about choirs, repertoire and programme of performances or joining us to sing please contact the Director of Music Richard Boyton on rickdomino47@aol.com

Thornton Watlass boasts a separate choral group that is in high demand for concerts and other events, frequently leading or contributing to festival services in St Mary's Church. The group meets weekly to prepare a variety of musical pieces to suit the season and nature of concerts to be performed.
