Launch of Cheltenham Festival of Performing Arts 2013

Thursday, 8 November 2012

Thursday 8th December saw us singing at Pittville School, at the concert to launch the 2013 Cheltenham Festival of Performing Arts.

We opened the concert with three songs, and the programme then went on to showcase many talented youngsters, who entertained us with dance, drama, poetry, music and theatre.

The Festival takes place every year in May, and is the oldest of all the Cheltenham festivals. A lot of money needs to be raised each year to keep this festival going.
