On this date there is a bee event in Ightenhill Park and joint choirs will be singing at 11.30 for approximately 25 minutes. Find the songs under “Songs” on this website and please come along to all rehearsals in the weeks before hand if you can!
Tuesday 23rd is the start of the new term. For the first 2 weeks of term Janet is going to teach us some beautiful songs of the season containing “Alleluiah”, followed closely by some beautiful English folk songs celebrating Springtime. Let’s hope you are all ready for this beautiful singing!
Please remember we are off in 2 weeks time, so there will be no session on 9 and 16 April. We will be back on Tuesday 23 April. And remember if you would like an extra session over Easter you can join Janet at Pendle Heritage Centre on Tuesday 16 April from 2.30 til 4.00.
On Tuesday 16th April, week leading to Easter, there will be no choir in the evening, but you are invited to a special singing session in the afternoon.
This will be at Pendle Heritage Centre in Barrowford. It is worth a visit – especially if you have never been before, and you will get chance to hear all about the Pendle Song Fellowship, as well as sing some interesting songs!
It will also be a great opportunity to recruit some new people to our group.

National Bee Day.There is going to be a “Buzzin Bee Day” in Ightenhill Park on Saturday 18 May. There will be lots of fun activities and stalls and hopefully we will be doing a little informal performance around late morning (it will be indoors if the weather is bad). We will be learning a few bee songs over the coming weeks, and hopefully you will feel able to support the “Singing for Fun” group in putting on this little performance about bees. One of the songs is “What would the world be, once bereft, of wet and wildness, let them be left” – from a poem by Gerard Manley Hopkins. All wildlife needs wild places and weeds. Let’s celebrate weeds!!
