The wait is over!

We have taken delivery of our latest CD and wow is it a cracker.

Featuring our famous big medleys of Jekyll & Hyde Overture, Star Wars Fantasia and one of the most popular of Ivan’s arrangements, Les Miserables. We pay tribute to Cilla Black and feature a wide repertoire of music from film, stage and the big bands. For the first time on CD we are joined by our very own soprano Elizabeth Phillips, who regular audience members will know from our Festival of Remembrance shows. More

After a sell-out show at the Waterside in Sale along with the Wellfield Junior Choirs, we have two shows to look forward to. The first is a private function for the Royal Artillery Association in Southport and then we’re back to another public sell-out show in Middleton. The details are above.

Book early for this one as it’s usually a cracker of a show - just the ticket for warming up as winter approaches.

We hope to see you there.
