BEVERLEY Minster chorister Abigail Moult is one of ten young singers from across the country to compete in the semi-finals of this year’s BBC Young Chorister of the Year competition. Abigail, a Year 11 pupil at Tranby School, travelled to Manchester last week for the recording of the programme, which will be screened on television in late November.

Robert Poyser, Director of Music at the Minster, said: “”Abigail has been a dedicated member of the Minster choir for over six years and we are delighted that she has reached the semi-finals of this prestigious competition. She is the first Beverley Minster chorister to get this far.” 

EARLIER this year, Beverley Guildhall introduced its new “Memory Museum”, which quickly earned the title of “The Smallest Cinema in the East Riding”. Now, in the second of the “Smallest Cinema” series, there’s another chance to see the film “Around the Town”, which was created by the Yorkshire Film Archive for the Beverley on Film exhibition in 2016.

The film uses video from events such as the 800th anniversary of Beverley as a Charter Borough in 1929 and the 400th charter anniversary in 1973, as well as general videos of the town in the 1950s, 60s and 70s. The film is about an hour long, and will be shown continuously while the building is open, starting from next Tuesday and continuing until February next year. Admission is free and there’s no need to book.

BEVERLEY Repair Cafe holds its latest monthly session this Saturday morning at the Armstrong Centre, from 9.30 to 11am. Volunteers will again be on hand to try to repair broken household and personal items to prevent them going to landfill.
