Village choir marks centenary of World War 1


CULCHETH Village Choir is to present a concert to mark the 100th anniversary of the end of the First World War.
The concert will be staged at Culcheth Sports Club (The Daten) on Charnock Road, Culcheth WA3 5SH on Sunday November 11 at 7.30 pm
Members of the choir decided they wanted to do something to mark the anniversary and put together a concert consisting of a programme of songs, some from the era, and arranged by their musical director Paul Vowles, a graduate of the Royal Northern College of Music, and others written by Paul especially for the event.
Choir members, some in period costume, will also read poetry and letters written during the war with a projected backdrop of images from the era.
Tickets are £5 and can be reserved on 07711 410855 or purchased from the bar at the club or paid for in cash on the door on the night. All profits are to be donated to The Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal and Help for Heroes.
Culcheth Village Choir was formed in 2013 by six people and has since grown to a choir of around 25 members. They are a mixed voice adult choir who meet every Thursday at Culcheth Sports Club at 7.30pm to 9pm. New members are always welcome.
There is no audition and no requirement to be able to read music. Just a love of the joy of singing is all that is required. The choir regularly perform at local community events and have taken part in the occasional choral competition, the last being the prestigious Alderley Edge Music Festival when they finished in fourth place.
