There is no audition – everyone is welcome – all ages. You don’t need to read music. It’s just for fun. We will sing simple songs in different languages, maybe some harmonies and rounds. We will have the chance to sing outside on the London Rd Festival site in Boothen Gardens, if we want to.
Go on – give it a go! You know you want to….
