Midsummer Song 2018

Singing on the day will be The Singing Club, Chepstow Chatelaines, Forest Singers, Mathern Ladies Choir, Newnham George Choir, and Springfield Singers. As part of the 10-year celebrations surrounding Coleford Festival of Words visitors will also get the chance to see local poet and Forest Bard Maggie Clutterbuck who will be sharing her new work, Full Circle an engaging and lively poetry performance from the Forest’s Poets in Progress (PIPs), Young Author Bryony Pearce talks pirates for the youngsters, and the audience will get a chance to vote on the best poetry readings in a mini-slam.

Visitors keen to test out their own vocal talents can join in one of the free taster workshops.  In these sessions, professionals will help you sing effectively and learn techniques to improve your repertoire, no experience necessary and all welcome.

 “Choirs are always very popular at our Christmas Markets, so we thought it would be great to dedicate a day to local singing groups and provide a platform for them to showcase their outstanding talents.”
