Here we are performing at St James's Church, Barrow during a fundraising concert for Barrow and District Disability Association . On a very fine summer evening we shared the stage with St James's School Choir and raised £800 for this deserving charity. We had a large and appreciative audience despite having competition from a World Cup game featuring England.
For our Annual Concerts this year we sang a new selection of new music at St Mary's Church, Barrow and at The Victoria Hall, Grange-over-Sands. Our concerts featured Tenor Soloist Iain Nicholson. The Choir would like to say A BIG THANK YOU to everyone who came to the Concerts and also to all the local businesses who sponsored us. Here we are pictured at St Mary's Church, Barrow with our Musical Director Deborah Milledge and Iain Nicholson .
In November we joined Risca Male Voice Choir for a Concert in Ambleside Parish Church and performed for an appreciative audience on a wet and windy evening. BIG THANKS to the Risca Choir for visiting us here in Cumbria, to Rotary Club of Ambleside for organising the event, to all the businesses who supportred the event by advertising in our programme and of course to our Audience.

On the Saturday before Christmas we performed festive songs in the Market Place and welcomed The Mayor and Mayoress of Barow, Councillor Bill and Mrs Judith McEwan to join us. Bill kindly pulled out the winning tickets in our Grand Christmas Draw and is pictured above with Choir Chairman Keith Newby and Secretary Bernard Beckett.
