Les Mis and the Beatles mark the Civic Service at Gloucester Cathedral
FROM Les Mis to the Beatles with a bit of rock 'n' roll thrown in, the Mayor of Gloucester Coun Chris Chatterton was determined to make this year's civic service a little different.
And different it was, with row upon row of schoolchildren packing out Gloucester Cathedral's nave yesterday.
There were performances by Beech Green Primary School and Ribston Hall along with a rendition of Rock Around the Clock on ukulele.
Mr Chatterton read from the Book of Revelation and, in his sermon, the Dean of Gloucester the Very Rev Stephen Lake spoke of the regeneration of the city and he also name-checked Abba and Robbie Williams as he marked the feast of St Michael and All Angels.
Gents, come in to Earl's & Co and enjoy a haircut and finish, glass of whisky and a shoeshine for £18.50
