About The Cathedrals Group of universities
The Cathedrals Group of universities are all based in the UK and have a shared commitment to serving the public good that springs from our faith-based values. As Chairperson of The Cathedrals Group, Leeds Trinity University's Vice-Chancellor Professor Margaret A House, chairs a group representative of more than 100,000 students enrolled in Member institutions.
As part of the group, choirs from the different institutions come together to meet each other and share their love of choral music at the annual Choirs Festival. In 2013, the group celebrated its 25th Anniversary, with 250 singers drawn from 11 Cathedrals Group Universities to perform in Birmingham. In 2016 the event was hosted in Winchester, and in 2017 – in our 50th Anniversary year – Leeds Trinity University will host the annual choir festival in Leeds.
