  3. Somerset Male Voice Choirs Together in Concert

    March 24, 2017 by Lara Lucas

    This event has been organised by the Mendip, Glastonbury, Taunton Deane, and the Avon and Somerset Constabulary Male Voice Choirs as a fund raising massed choir concert to support two charities local  to the area, the Children's Hospice South West, and the Dorset and Somerset Air Ambulance.

    The programme of music will feature many of the stronger and popular individual pieces loved by supporters of male voice choirs, including sacred and secular music, interspersed with two, as yet undeclared soloists to provide a break for the choirs.

    Approximately 180 male voices will be on stage in the Cathedral on the evening of the 27th October, having practiced and perfected a choice of music selected by the four Directors of the different choirs.

    The compere will be Robin Hobbs, the popular host of many male voice choir concerts over the years, who will no doubt keep the audience entertained, whilst he regails them with various anecdotes between the concert pieces. The evening promises something of everything for the audience, and with the projected size of the massed choir should produce a unique and wonderful sound.


  4. Wings & Wheels

    by Lara Lucas

    This popular and well established event is now in its 18th year. It is still staged by the original team of volunteers and is justifiably proud of its continuing support for the airfield-based Air Ambulance. Given reasonable flying weather we expect to host well over 100 vintage, classic and current light aircraft. Our Classic Car paddock features everything from 1930s sports cars, military vehicles and modern Supercars. There is all-day catering from the Clubhouse and Marquee and our Barbecues are not to be missed. A special and unique feature is the lunch-time ‘Airpark Opening’; your chance to visit the aircraft for close-up photos and a chat with some of the pilots.

    Subject to tasking the Air Ambulance…new this year…will also come over to ‘meet-and-greet’. We are delighted to announce that our regular BBMF ‘Fly-past Salute’ will have the newly overhauled LANCASTER escorted by TWO SPITFIRES. Once again our prices are unchanged at just £5 for adults and acc. u/16s free…carparks are also free.

    For the latest information see us on www.dorsetcarclub.co.uk and follow us on Facebook. Vehicle and trade enquiries phone 07887 744163 (24hr messaging service). Don’t miss this friendly and memorable show!
