10 year anniversary

13 Oct

It is 10 years since Social Forum Cymru in Aberystwyth and the formation of Côr Gobaith. 2016 is another busy year for the choir, especially with Red Leicester hosting the Street Choir Festival, which we’ll particularly want to support, but we still find time to celebrate!

Concert at the Morlan on 30 April at 7 for 7.30pm followed by partying and singing till we drop – inviting all our ex-members, friends, comrades and supporters to celebrate with us: PLEASE COME.

Past and present members meet on Friday 29 April for drinks, catch up and reminiscence, then we all sing together at Street sing at 11am on Saturday 30 April, party in the evening and Sunday we sing, talk, walk……
