Music in Newnham

WELCOME TO THE MUSIC IN NEWNHAM PAGE.

The idea behind this section of the village website is to provide a point of contact for anyone interested in listening to, performing, playing, learning or teaching music in the village. It can also be used to provide links to local bands. If you have any content you would like included, or would like to get involved in the running of the page then please e-mail rivermen@hotmail.co.uk

If you are interested in up and coming concerts or musical events in the village then please check the main diary page.

LIVE MUSIC AT THE RAILWAY

There is live music with free entry most weeks at The Railway. Check their Facebook page at www.facebook.com/railway.newnham and Twitter at http://twitter.com/RailwayNewnham to see what music DP has lined up for us all.

 

CHOIRS

THE CHURCH CHOIR sings every Sunday at services but welcomes extra voices at festivals such as Christmas and Easter. At a recent Carol Service, for instance, there were 20 of us to lead the singing in four parts and to perform three choir-only items.  For more information get in touch with Nigel Haig – 516545 nanddhaig@uwclub.net

GEORGE’S CHOIR is open to anyone who wants to sing. Come along and get involved. We meet in the Armoury Hall at 7.30pm on a Wednesday evening.  For more details contact Ellie eleanorholliday@googlemail.com
