Broughton Parish Church Choir are returning to rehearsals as usual during the autumn term.


It is hoped within the next 12 months that the talented group of singers will be able to resume the busy programme they enjoyed pre-pandemic.

The boys, together with the men of the choir, lead two principal services each Sunday.

These young Choristers, drawn mostly from Schools in the Preston area, have gained a reputation for the excellence of
their singing not only locally, but on their travels.

Pre-pandemic, they led services in Westminster Abbey and St Paul’s in London, in the magnificent Cathedrals in Durham and Liverpool, in addition to travelling overseas to sing to packed audiences at Summer Concerts in Brittany.

The choir also travel yearly to the Isle of Man where they spend time receiving concentrated musical training, whilst enjoying a holiday together.

The musical training ensures that the choir boys are ahead of the singing game

Life as a Broughton boy chorister is not all music, however. With annual events such as the Dads and Lads Football
Tournament, ‘Kit-Kat Trophy’ Quick Cricket, The Summer Sports Afternoon, The BBQ, Day trips to North Wales and
Blackpool Pleasure Beach, there are certainly plenty of opportunities for the members of this enthusiastic team to play
and relax together.

Broughton Church is rightly proud of its reputation for musical excellence, and over the years, a number of boys have
progressed to gain Choral and Organ Scholarships in major Cathedral Churches.

The church is committed to continue to provide a first class free musical training and to encourage high standards of
personal achievement.
