Upcoming events and dates
After Session Social
After the last session before the midterm break we will retire across the road to the Green Dragon and have a social sip of whatever takes your fancy. A great chance to meet and mingle with all those other choir members you see each week across the hall but so seldom get the time to talk to. Your chance to put a person behind the voice!
Informal End of Term
Baptist Church, Main Hall
Unusually there will not be a friends and family concert to mark the end of term and showcase all the songs we have learnt together.

Carols Under the Stars
Supporting the Blackdown Hills AONB we will once again be joining in on the magical evening of candles, bonfire, mince pies and Christmas Carols Under the Stars at Wellington Monument: weather permitting!
