Back to All Events



The AD HOC Singers are a small, Driffield based Chamber Choir and consist of four sopranos, three altos, three tenors and four bases under the Musical Director David Cooper.

The choral group had a very successful year in 2016, performing two performances of Edwardian music at the reconstructed Pit Village Chapel, Beamish Museum in May, Mozart’s Missa Brevis in C major at Nafferton Methodist Church at Easter and Harpham Church in June. This was followed by songs from the shows at the Orangery, Sewerby and St John’s Church , Burlington. The choir also performed the choral work, Night of Miracles by John W Peterson, along with other Christmas music at Hornsea Methodist Church and All Saints, Kilham during December.


Open Arts Access

Our programme us to offer free performance space to musicians, artists and groups

Aimed at acoustic performers, the church is offering artists and groups the opportunity to perform in front of an audience and hone their skills. Whether a solo artist, a small band or a poet, performers will be able to develop their repertoire, experiment with new material, or build up a performance portfolio by recording the event.

The scheduled performances are available to book on Friday and Saturday afternoons from 1pm and are free of charge. Audience members may choose to make a donation, which will go to the performer.

The Minster will help publicise performances through the church’s website and provide refreshments for visitors before and after the events. Practice spaces may also be available beforehand.
