Happy New Year Everyone!


I hope you all had a good Christmas and New Year celebrations in spite of all the infections that were going round – nearly everyone seems to have had some variation of the ghastly gastric/chest bug!    The snow was wonderful but such a disappointment to have to cancel our Christmas concert that looked so special and promised much.


But here we are ready to start 2018 – lots to look forward to…………a few dates for your diaries…..


On 16th June we will be appearing as part of the Witney Arts Festival ‘Mad about Witney’ w/e. More info soon!


HOORAY! Although we missed performing at Asthall Manor at Christmas, we will be performing there on the evening of 21st June as part of the ‘On form’ sculpture exhibition. This happens in the beautiful grounds of the manor every year and people come from all over to see and touch the lovely sculptures – this year there is to be an evening concert provided by us.  Please put in your diaries now!


October is going to be our busy month this year!  We will be giving a concert in aid of Victims of Torture – the venue and the date are being finalised at the moment but it is most likely to be the first w/e and the venue will be somewhere in Oxford. Watch this space.


In October (13/14th) we will also be heading for Wales for Monmouth to sing again with the Choir Festival of UK.

It was amazing last year and the residential venue in Wales looks fantastic – we want as many of you as possible to come – if you did not come to St Albans – please do talk to someone who did so that you can hear why it was such fun and we can have a full team for this year, to perform and to learn and to have fun.


We have also been invited to Le Touquet to sing at their Christmas Market the w/e of the 7th/9th December. Please put this in your diaries NOW! It will come round only too fast………


And don’t forget Women’s Probus have already booked us to sing at their lunch on 12th December at Witney Lakes.


Doubtless more Xmas things will come in – they are not all as ahead in their planning as the Witney Ladies……………….


So once again we are looking forward to an exciting year with the choir.
