Anyone who came within a few hundred yards of St Mary’s Church for Ben Parry’s Come and Sing... The Sound of Music last summer will have heard a church full of extremely happy people and will also have seen a wonderful parade of Nun’s habits, lederhosen and dirndls as many of the happy crowd of singers turned up in full costume. There is no particular dress code for this year’s version – although outrageous flares are of course welcome - but we fully anticipate a similarly fun experience at the 2018 equivalent, when the charismatic director of the National Youth Choir of Great Britain, Ben Parry, takes us through our paces in versions of Dancing Queen, Mamma Mia, Knowing Me Knowing You, and numerous other numbers from the incredible ABBA songbook. Including full band...! The workshop will culminate in a mini-concert at 3.45pm. Friends and family are welcome to come to St Mary’s at 3.30pm for this.
