DIARY: Choristers breaking into snow business hope it’ll be all white on the night

Brigit Cunningham, PR officer at Wells Cathedral School, is praying for snow. The school, one of the UK’s top places for fledgling choristers, is releasing a Christmas CD in 1999 and Cunningham hopes that the cover will depict cherry-faced boys and girls standing on a canvas of snow outside the Somerset cathedral.

Brigit Cunningham, PR officer at Wells Cathedral School, is praying

for snow. The school, one of the UK’s top places for fledgling

choristers, is releasing a Christmas CD in 1999 and Cunningham hopes

that the cover will depict cherry-faced boys and girls standing on a

canvas of snow outside the Somerset cathedral.



The only snag is that snow rarely falls in Wells so Cunningham is trying

to arrange for some artificial snow to complete the picture. Using her

talents Cunningham has even procured local TV coverage for the

photoshoot so she would appreciate help from anybody with contacts in

the artificial snow world.



In a bizarre twist Wells has agreed to help an expedition to a place

where there is plenty of the white stuff - the North Pole. The school

will provide internet backup to the first male and female expedition to

the top of the world.



Cunningham tells me that she thought of sending a scale model of the

cathedral along with the expedition in an attempt to attract offers of

snow from Eskimos. ’But as they will be pulling heavy sleighs for some

80 days, I don’t think I would be too popular if I asked them to

assist.’
