Trowell (WI) Ladies Choir

The Choir was formed in 1970 and has always had non-WI members.  We are a very friendly, lively group of about 14 ladies who enjoy singing.  We entertain at local Care homes and some other events (sometimes WI) with a mix of light popular songs and the odd comedy sketch.

We practise on Monday nights 7.30 to 9pm at the Church Hall, Nottingham Rd, Trowell from the first Monday in September to the end of June.  We welcome any ladies who would like to come along to see what we do and think about joining us.  There are no auditions and it is not necessary to read music – you will probably know the songs anyway.

Ring Pat Wilson on 0115 9287051 if you would like more information, or to discuss how we can entertain you or your organisation.
