Announcing The BIG SING! – Riverside Vineyard, Feltham, Middlesex
We have SEVEN UK Sings! choirs in our UK Sings! family: Ashford, Winchester, Northampton, Mansfield, Walderslade, Swansea and Kipton (Norfolk). Potentially there could be nearly 250+ singers taking part. We look forward to seeing everyone, meeting some old friends, forging more links with our other choirs, and taking part in our biggest singing ensemble ever (so far!) We know it’s going to be a fun and exciting day.
DRESS CODE FOR SINGERS: Please wear BLACK Ashford Sings! choir t-shirts, OR plain black tops. Black trousers or skirts and black shoes. If you purchased a BIG Sing! t-shirt last year at Leicester, please do bring this along to wear.
