Following months of careful planning a joint concert is imminent. Avon and Somerset Constabulary MVC combine with Denbigh and District MVC at St John’s Church, Llandudno.
The choir’s first stop is at the town of Denbigh. A walking Guided Tour of the historical town on Friday June 26 is available.
Thereafter, a Buffet awaits at the Denbigh Conservative Club.
Joint Choirs Socialise
Here the two choirs will meet and greet. The Mayor of Denbigh and Choir Vice President, Raymond Bartley, will welcome our guests.
Next day a joint concert takes place at St John’s Church, Llandudno, at 8:00pm. Guest soloist is Mezzo Soprano Kathryn Nash.
The Avon and Somerset Constabulary MVC website states:
“The choir enjoys a high reputation for its quality of performance. It has won many cups and certificates at choral competitions.

And so on to north Wales!
