LGBTHM15 – Over The Top

We had a fabulous time taking part in the ‘Over The Top’ event, as part of ‪#‎LGBTHM15‬. It was great to see so many members of the community joining together to celebrate. We’re glad to hear that there will be another event next year and are already planning ahead!

Celebrating the Life of Henry Tickner

It is hard to believe that it is a year since our mustachioed and much loved bass, Henry Tickner, left this world. We shall be joining with his friends and family, to remember ‘Our Henry’, at a memorial concert on the 31st January. Please join us to celebrate the life of Henry Tickner.

Fun and Frivolity at the Choir Weekend Away 2014

Gay Abandon spent the weekend in Kettlewell rehearsing for our ‘Idols and Icons’ concert. Dance moves were perfected and notes polished. We even got to spend some quality time with each other!  Don’t forget to buy your ticket to the concert on the 15th November so that you see the fruits of our labours.
