The Y Factor Vocal Workshop

Choirs and Church combine to raise funds

Congratulations to the Lady Bay Community Choir who, with support from members of the Ruddington Community Choir, raised over £200 for the Opening Doors community engagement project at Cotgrave Methodist Church on Saturday 18 October. It was a great event with some fantastic solo and group performances, both from the choir and from members of the Church. The audience joined in too with some roof-raising community singing. Well done to all involved!

Ruddington Community Choir perform at the James Peacock School Community Carnival

Ruddington Community ChoirWhat a lovely, sunny day for the James Peacock School Community Carnival. A great turn-out and a great atmosphere, helped along enormously by the Ruddington Community Choir whose unexpected a cappella version of California Dreamin’ was a triumph!! We witnessed an impressive solo debut by Gary Choo who led the choir in ‘One Love’. Well done also to Will Bracha and his (almost) willing assistants for the impromptu samba band.


“HUGE, HUGE, thank you to you all for your support at the JP Carnival yesterday and, indeed, for the fabulous performance.  I had many, many positive wonderful comments and we have already been invited back to future events!!  I hope you managed to have a look around and enjoy the afternoon also.  Thank you again everyone!” Ruth Keen
