March 29th 2019 : Our Next Public Performance

We are giving a concert at St Michael’s, Bramhall  ( http://bramhall.church/contact/ ) on 29th March,starting at 7.30pm.

This will be the third year in a row that we have been invited to perform  St Michael’s. Once again the concert will be a fundraiser for the very worthy cause, much-needed youth services at The Mill (http://www.themillbramhall.com/).

A little trip outside our usual Eccles locality, St  Michael’s is a lovely place for a concert – warm. comfortable and welcoming; also an excellent acoustic space. It’s our privilege and pleasure to perform there, and all for a very good cause. It would be great if you are able to come along and enjoy the entertainment; admission is £7.

 

 

Seasonal Songs at the Intu Trafford Centre : help us with your Christmas Shopping!

Merry-Christmas-Animated-christmas-9299691-547-530

Make sure that you look out for us on Thursday 13th December at the Trafford Centre.

We will be there with our collection buckets singing seasonal songs upstairs on regent Crescent outside Debenhams to help you enjoy your Christmas Shopping.

Speaking of shopping…If you shop online, please would you do so via this Easy Fundraising link :

https://www.easyfundraising.org.uk/causes/ecclescommunitychoir/

It won’t cost you anything and you won’t be subjected  to any adverts. The company you buy from will make a donation to the choir.  Over 3000 of the big retailers have signed up to this scheme. They want to donate to good causes and you can tell them who you want them to donate to. Isn’t it brilliant? Of course there are lots of other Easy Fundraising good causes you can choose here if you prefer, but I hope you will choose the choir. It will help to keep our subscriptions low and could help hundreds of people in the wider community to access our wholesome entertainment by helping to cover our performance costs.

On my PC, I have bookmarked the link on my web browser, so I can just click on it anytime I want to shop online and I have downloaded the app onto my phone. -easy-peasy! Even a small online purchase earns pennies for the choir! Yay! And pennies make pounds!

Christmas is Coming!

 

We are delighted that we have been invited to perform at the MediaCityUK first official Christmas Light Switch On!

Join us on Thursday the 22nd November on Media City Plaza from 5pm for a festive evening of entertainment, great food, and Christmas drinks. The event will be hosted by the BBC Breakfast‘s legendary Mike Bushell. We will be performing first, in a stellar line up of local community groups, including Salford Steel and Reflections dance troop. There will be Christmas Market stalls at the Lowry too.

Organised in partnership with Wild in Art, The Christmas Light Switch On will also launch ‘Walking with The Snowman’, a wintry walk around MediaCityUK to mark the 40th anniversary of Raymond Briggs’ heart-warming tale, ‘The Snowman’. The Snowman sculptures will be waiting to be discovered on this family-friendly trail.
