Tonight for the first time in its history, a girls choir will perform a Christmas Concert at Canterbury Cathedral.
The formation of the all girl choir in January ended a one-thousand year tradition of all male choristry at the Cathedral.
A unique event will take place at Canterbury Cathedral in December, when its first ever all-girls' choir perform their first public Christmas concert.
The choir was formed in January this year and is made up of 16 mainly local girls aged between 12 and 18 years old.
Their first performance attracted over 600 people, and they are now busy rehearsing for their Christmas debut.
They also performed at the service held to mark the 20th anniversary of the ordination of women priests this year.
The concert will take place on 5th December in the cathedral's Nave.
