ANNIVERSARY WALK

A walk beside the Thames – we had a large turn out and were really lucky with the weather! There are some photographs at Anniversary Walk Photos and you can see what we did at Anniversary Walk and Anniversary Walk Detail

Anniversary Choir Concert

Took place on July 24th 2019 at Hersham Baptist Church

See some photographs at Anniversary Choir Photos

Members of the Choir were asked to nominate their all-time favourites from their extensive repertoire, and the result is an eclectic mix of music and song, which should have something for everyone. From the Ancient Britons – think Woad - through 16th Century Madrigals, Italian Opera and romantic ballads, the concert will culminate in a rousing sing-along to favourites from ‘My Fair Lady’ - one of the Choir’s signature pieces.

There was a party atmosphere throughout and the post-concert refreshments included a slice of celebration cake. There was no charge, though contributions were made to a local charity. The choir was delighted with the size and enthusiasm of the large audince.
