Extreme Cellists at Southwark Cathedral

The Extreme Cellists have given a rooftop recital at Southwark Cathedral.

Extreme Cellists at Southwark Cathedral

It was the trio's sixteenth stop on a tour of all 42 Anglican cathedrals in England from Truro to Carlisle in twelve days.

The plan is to play on a roof or in an extreme location such as a high gallery whilst a collection is taken down below in aid of Shelter and Aspire charities.

Sheffield-based Jeremy Dawson, Clare Wallis and James Rees arrived on time at Southwark after an eight hour dash from Lancing College in Sussex via Chichester, Canterbury and Rochester Cathedrals.

A crowd had gathered at the end of Cathedral Street and, with the players having been assigned one of the lower roofs, the music was audible. The twenty minute programme included ‘Up On The Roof' and a first public performance of 'I'm forever blowing bubbles' for the benefit of West Ham fans.

Afterwards the players enjoyed refreshment at the Market Porter.
