The choir travelled to Gateshead, Tyne & Wear on Friday 6th June and teamed up with Felling Male Voice Choir for a concert at St Marks Church, Gateshead which included two joint pieces ‘You Raise Me Up’ and ’76 Trombones’.

The trip included sightseeing tours of Newcastle, Durham and Knaresborough and some choristers participated in a 24 hour Folk Festival at the ‘Sage’, a purpose built concert venue on the banks of the Tyne, one of  the cities major landmarks and a spectacular building. The choir stayed at the Ramada hotel in the city centre close to the Millenium Bridge, another landmark and a civil engineering masterpiece.
