Bexhill-on-Sea – The day Simon came home

We had a fantastic trip to Bexhill-on-Sea on the 17th October 2015.

The choir were on top form as our musical director, Simon Wookey, gave us a tour of his home town.

After learning a number of Keane songs, where else could we start than the Sovereign Light Cafe, made famous by the group in their song from the album Strangelands. The cafe is quite small, so we assembled outside to sing a number of songs to the gathered crowd which was very warmly received (even if the  weather wasn’t quite as warm being October!)

Then we went to a local care home and the residents seemed to really enjoy our range of songs, especially Daydream Believer and Thank you for the Music.12115501_954963611226810_709330944794643306_n


Finally we ended up at St Augustine’s Church. This church has a special place for Simon as his father was for many years their organist and it was fantastic for him to bring the Choir to a location with such close family connections. After a fish and chip supper (what else!), we had a superb concert and the audience gave us a rapturous reception.

It was such a great day and we hope we can go back again soon. But for now, it is time to look ahead to our Chirstmas Concert at St. John’s Church, Watford on 12th December – tickets are on sale now!
