Run by the charismatic Juliet Russell, the choir has recently supported renowned Senegalese musician, Nuru Kane, at Rye Creative Centre and will soon be performing on The Stade (July 8), and at Party in the Park, in Bexhill (August 11) with more dates to be confirmed over the summer.

Doors open at 8.15pm, and the gig begins at 9pm.
