Over 250 singers and musicians will come together to perform The City Garden at Lincoln Cathedral. Award winning choirs Scunthorpe Junior Choir and the Choirs of Lincoln Minster School will join the Salisbury Community Choir under the direction of Jeremy Backhouse, one of Britain's leading choral conductors.
The City Garden is a cantata composed by Will Todd, one of Britain's finest young composers.
It takes the listener on a romantic journey through the seasons with different moods, temperatures and weather supplying the light and shade. It combines a foot-tapping mix of jazz and gospel with unforgettable melodies and lyrics, and links the four seasons and the human journey from Adam's fall to man's redemption; it is a moving and spiritual work on many levels. It's a wonderful piece to sing and is a vibrant, emotional and arresting piece to listen to.
Salisbury Community Choir has in excess of 150 members, and has a real community focus, having raised in excess of £100,000 for a range of charities. For their Lincoln Cathedral performance the choir will be donating all proceeds to Lincoln's local charity St Barnabas Lincolnshire Hospice.

Lincoln Drill Hall was built in 1890 on the site of Henry Newsum's Steam Saw Mill. It was paid for by city industrialist Joseph Ruston who presented the building by Deed of Gift to the Mayor of Lincoln. It was opened on 24 May 1890 by The Right Honorary Edward Stanhope, Secretary of State for War and Member of Parliament for Horncastle.
For most of the first part of the 20th Century it was used as a military and police training hall, but was also available for entertainment and was used by Mr Ruston's employees for regular dances. After the Second World War all kinds of events began to be staged in the Drill Hall from wrestling, to bingo, to live bands. The Rolling Stones played here on 31 December 1963, prior to their appearance on the very first Top of the Pops the next day!
By the late 1990s, the building had begun to fall into a state of disrepair and it was closed in 1999 due to the electrical systems being unsafe.
Five years and a £2.6m refurbishment later the building was effectively 'turned round' and re-opened in 2004 as Lincoln Drill Hall, an arts and community venue, with a fully equipped flexible auditorium, a cafe bar and two smaller rooms all available for hire. The venue was run by City of Lincoln Council until September 2010 from when the management of the venue was handed over to Lincoln Arts Trust Ltd, an independent registered charity.
Lincoln Drill Hall now presents an all year round programme of jazz, theatre, literature, comedy, blues, dance, rock & pop, classical music, children's events and workshops and also hosts a huge number of meetings & conferences.
Lincoln Performing Arts Centre is a modern theatre in the city centre, with a great range of shows and a friendly cafe bar. We are walking distance from High Street shopping and the restaurants on the Brayford Pool waterfront, you will also find plenty of parking nearby.
The Collection replaces the original City and County Museum in Lincoln, which had been open since 1906 and encompasses the Usher Gallery next door.
Located in the centre of the city, the new institution has been purposefully built to fit in with its historic surroundings. As such it is faced in Lincolnshire limestone and the roof has been made to look like lead so as to complement the roof of Lincoln Cathedral nearby.
