Last Thursday we were proud to present a cheque for £2250 to our 2022/3 charity, The Rosemary Foundation - so we made a bit of a song and dance about it with an Open Evening for friends, old and new. We performed some of our new songs, and enjoyed stomping along to our sea shanty group, The Barnacles.
A fabulous Summer Sensation show raised funds for this year's charity: the Rosemary Foundation. As well as our new songs, the show featured soloists Kevin Bunting and Connor Judd, our sea shanty group The Barnacles, and our MC and entertainer Ollie Butler. We all had a lovely evening and from what we hear ... so did our guests.
Barnacles at The Warren (Folks in Harmony)
Date Posted: Mon, 10 Jul 2023
Those crusty barnacles have been out and about again - they blew the storm clouds away at the Party for the Warren yesterday!
It's hard to believe that Folks In Harmony has just celebrated our 10th birthday! Back in 2012, three friends and former members of a ladies chorus decided to try something new, so created an a cappella choir and invited some men to join. We started singing in a sitting room and quickly grew to 18 members for our first official practice in August 2012. Needing a larger venue, we hired Bedhampton Community centre, where we’ve been ever since. Now we have over 40 members - and a lot more friends! We've won competitions and performed around our local community, and we stage two concerts a year to raise money for local charities. Happy Birthday to Us
