We're delighted to announce that the Cor Meibion Llangollen Male Voice Choir will be joining us for our Spring Concert this year. The men's motto, "Cyfeillgarwch drwy Gan" or, "Friendship through Song" truly characterizes the nature of this event, which will feature each of the choirs performing some of their own repertoire, and an inspiring finale which will feature all singers united in song. Do join us for one of the highlights of our community's musical calendar!

This year, we're raising funds for St Luke's Cheshire Hospice who provide dedicated Hospice care to local people. It takes £7500 per day to enable the Hospice to offer their services free of charge to members of the local community and we're very pleased to be able to help them raise those funds. The Hospice also run a fantastic coffee shop & creperie on Pillory Street in Nantwich. Swirly Whirlys is well worth a visit!

So, come and join us at St Boniface Church in Bunbury on Saturday May 9th 2015. Make some new friends, listen to some fabulous music and imbibe a glass or two with us at our post concert drinks reception.

Tickets are £8 for adults, £4 for children. You can purchase them online via our Box Office , from Swaffields, Tarporley High Street or via a choir member.
