CHORAL group the King's Singers are to headline biennial Dorchester Festival which is back for 2022 after Covid cancelled the fun last year. 

The a Cappella group, formed in Cambridge, have won two grammy awards and an Emmy, as well as performing at prestigious venues around the world. 

Performances will also be held by Jen Brister and the Garsington Opera.  

Food, folk music, duck racing, and a dog show are also listed in the 62 events promised over the course of the festivities.

The festival will run from April 29 until May 8, with a mixture of free and ticketed events.

Oxford West and Abingdon MP Layla Moran will open the event at noon on the first day by abseiling 100ft down the tower of Dorchester Abbey in the village, near Wallingford. 

This year the festival will be partnering and sharing profits with Daybreak, a local charity that supports people with dementia as well as raising money for the abbey.
