Lancing College hosts BBC Radio programmes

Lancing College Chapel has recently hosted two BBC Radio broadcasts.

The venue welcomed BBC Radio 4’s Sunday Worship programme last month and last week’s BBC Radio 3 Choral Evensong broadcast. Sunday Worship was led by celebrant Fr Richard Harrison, the college’s chaplain, with the choir of Lancing College Chapel singing a setting of the Mass by Neil Cox, the college’s director of chapel music. Rafi Bellamy Plaice, BBC Radio 2 Young Chorister of the Year 2017, performed a solo piece, as did former pupil Jack Redman, an organ scholar at the college until 2016.

Dominic Oliver, headmaster at Lancing, commented: “It is a huge privilege to welcome BBC Radio 3 and 4 to Lancing College Chapel. The college’s reputation for outstanding music is recognised around the world and we have received many messages of congratulation from listeners. The chapel is a magnificent setting from which to broadcast these world-renowned programmes.”
