More than 1,000 pupils, parents, and former students marked the 150th anniversary of the opening of Framlingham College by attending the College Carol Service in St Edmundsbury Cathedral.
The service included a specially commissioned piece – Matthew Sheeran’s ethereal version of In the Bleak Midwinter sung by former pupil and international soprano Christina Johnston.
Headmaster Paul Taylor described the event as “a truly uplifting and affirming occasion shared by the whole extended Framlingham College community”.
He said: “The college was founded by contributions from people all over the county, so it was entirely fitting that this anniversary Carol Service should take place in the county’s cathedral.”
The event in Bury St Edmunds was attended by many Old Framlinghamians.
