And we’re off…



The choir heads off on a jolly on Friday;  heading towards the blue skies of Northern Ireland for a weekend of fun, frolics and making new friendships.

We will compete, give a concert with the excellent Bangor Ladies Choir, visit Belfast City Hall and have a touristy visit to Mount Stewart (a gorgeous National Trust property in Co. Down).

We’ll keep you posted via our Facebook page and will sincerely try and bring back the same number of choristers that we take!

The choir will sing music from every genre imaginable, has a few surprises on the …… choreography front and will do their best to represent the sunny south coast as well as they can!
