50th Morland Choristers’ Camp – Alumni Camp

Wednesday 3rd – Sunday 7th August 2022

We unfortunately have to postpone celebrating 50 years of Morland Choristers’ Camp. We have come to the conclusion that the priority is for the main Camp to continue for the children, without having to accommodate the alumni, however loved, in the church, rehearsal spaces etc. We are unclear what the Covid restrictions might be at the end of July, but planning has to allow for some degree of social distancing and Camp members not mixing with people from outside. We are sure you understand and so one more disappointment to add to the whole host of unforeseen consequences of this most extraordinary past year.
We will meet next year, however, Wednesday 3rd August to Sunday 7th August 2022. We will be planning for a FoM at Morland on Saturday 6th November as usual and we will celebrate 50 years eventually!

Calling all Camp alumni: come and re-live your Morland days and be at the right place, at the right time, with the right equipment.

Based at Newby End Farm for rehearsals with current and former music directors, Morland Camp alumni will join with the main camp to sing Compline in Morland Church, Evensong in Carlisle Cathedral, the Concert in St Andrew’s Church, Penrith and Eucharist in Morland Church. The alumni course will also include a post-compline drinks reception, a Morland Trivia Quiz and, potentially, a bit of (optional) dam building! You can view a draft timetable here.

The fee for the alumni camp is £50, to cover the cost of refreshments and sheet music. We are not seeking to generate a profit from this event, but any surplus funds at the end of the weekend will go to the Camp bursary fund.

We have designed the schedule so that Thursday and Friday evenings are given over to free time so that alumni can make their own arrangements for dinner. Accommodation is not provided for alumni, but a list of local campsites, B&Bs and hotels will be distributed to all participants.

Please complete a registration form as soon as possible to register your place, and pay the full balance by 1st July 2022.

We are eager to get in touch with as many previous Morland Choristers’ Camp attendees as possible. Please help spread the word by downloading a postcard below, or send us an email and we can send you some physical postcards in the post to send on to your contemporaries from Camp.

For any questions, please email us at alumni@morland.org.uk.
