During this half term week there will be no class in Todmorden as new windows are being fitted at the Fielden Centre and also no class at Marple Methodist Church as Carol is off for half term.

Mid Pennine Arts are holding an event commemorating the Christmas Truce of the First World War. This link goes directly to information about the event and gives all the necessary musical information too. You are very welcome to use this if you are interested in participating in the event. The first workshop took place yesterday and I understand that it was a great success with more than 50 singers attending. There are still 2 more workshops to go and therefore still time to join in.https://app.box.com/s/b266haymnyvjqendbem6

What a wonderful time we had at the Street Choirs Festival! About 40 Secret Singers took part (I am not sure of the exact number because it was like counting a box of frogs!!) and we made a very good showing.
