Choir has the Wight stuff

Choir has the Wight stuff

The only male voice choir on the island is heading to the National Botanic Garden of Wales on Sunday November 4th.

The Isle of Wight’s Newchurch Choir is 40 voices strong and will be calling in at the Carmarthenshire attraction as part of a tour of west Wales.

Tour organiser, Phil Durban, says: “The choir sings mainly on the Isle of Wight and primarily to fundraise for charity and occasionally travels to ‘The North Island’ – what islanders call mainland Britain – for tours. We are all very excited about singing at the Garden and in the largest single-span glasshouse in the world, too.”

Newchurch Choir, who promise some Welsh music in their wide-ranging repertoire, will be on the stage in the Great Glasshouse between 12noon and 2pm.

The Garden is open from 10am until 4.30pm. For more information on Garden news and events,  email  or call 01558 667149.
