Trips

The choir has over the years travelled extensively always combining the tours with fund raising concerts for whatever genuine charity needs our help. From Prague to Barbados from Wiesbaden to Benidorm. Virtually all over the British Isles and the continent. Many times our choristers have combined with other choirs to tour places like New Zealand and Australia calling in on exotic places like Hong Kong and Singapore. Once you become a chorister the world is your Oyster. Scroll down to see photos of many memorable sojourns

 Below is the most recent trip to France at the end of October 2012. The photograph is of the group consisting of choristers with wives and partners, taken in front of the statue of a mounted Louis X1V at the centre of the "Place de Bellecour" in Lyon, France.

A street party in Wiesbaden Germany in the forefront, about to get a beer shampoo, is Sian Menna who has accompanied the choir on many occasions. She has a beautiful soprano voice with a power that belies her diminutive physical stature
