A walking treasure hunt in Rothwell

 "The Seagrave Singers Go Searching"

On Monday, 17th July, The Seagrave Singers ended their 2017 summer sessions with a Treasure Hunt in Rothwell, planned by Kay Carson and myself, Margaret Reed. Over 20 members enjoyed a look round the town centre searching for clues, and taking in many of the historic bildings in the town ~ the Market House, Jesus Hospital and Holy Trinity Church. No one got lost on their walk and afterwards we all met in the lounge of the Conservative Club at Tresham Hall, and enjoyed a buffet supper and a quiz.Great fun was had by all!!

Kiss Me Kate theatre outing to Kilworth House Theatre

 It was a lovely/warm evening in June that several members of the Seagrave Singers, along with friends and family enjoyed another of Kilworth Outdoor Theatre shows. Most agreed it was one of the best shows they had seen there. 

 
 

This time it was KISS ME KATE, with music and lyrics by Cole Porter.......

1940's Baltimore and it's opening night.....Ten minutes to the curtain going up and backstage all hell is let loose! The story unfolds on and off stage as romantic entanglements, mistaken identities and hairy encounters ensue. The show is full of wit and mischief  and includes songs "Another Op'in, Another Show", "Brush Up Your Shakespeare", "To Darn Hot" and "So In Love".

Sue's Singing Workshop

Saturday saw the Seagrave Singers at their second singing workshop. Thanks to MD Sue Peel who once again provided an informative, stimulating and entertaining singing experience which managed to hold our attention for the whole day. Thanks also to Karen for her support on the keyboard and for brightening our day with one of her many show-stopping outfits, the ladies helping to set up the room and providing tea and coffee for the breaks and in fact everyone for the lovely food provided for our bring and share lunch. Great Addington Village Hall provided an ideal venue, although our striving for perfection did not necessarily extend to the car park, and if only bell ringing practice at the church opposite had been a bit earlier it would have fitted in nicely with Oranges and Lemons of the London Medley!

Post Christmas Social 

Once again the choir chose to have their Christmas social in the New Year. That didn't stop members from donning their christmas glitz and glamour for an evening of fun and games at The Red Lion in Rothwell. Kay compered the evening of a Christmas Quiz, compiled by choir member Lynne and her husband Kevin, and between rounds there was a form of "Play Your Cards Right". There was much laughter during the evening. A delicious and plentiful buffet supper was served. It was so good to relax and enjoy quality time with good friends.

Sue's Singing Day

Knuston Hall, near Rushden, was the venue for a fantastic singing day organised and run by Musical Director Sue Peel.

The day commenced with fun warm-up exercises, both physically and vocally. There then followed intense sessions learning two new Christmas songs and revising others in our repertoire. It wasn't all hard work and there was plenty of time for laughter (and chat!). Alongside learning our new songs Sue explained some of the musical symbols to help members of the choir who do not read music, and that added a different dimension to the day.  

Knuston Hall has an excellent reputation as an education and conference centre and the majority of the choir were pleased to be able to enjoy the surroundings and good food.

Two weddings and a show!

It was a busy day for members of the choir.

Choir member Steph Whitney married Graham Bell at St Botolph's Church, Barton Seagrave.

Longstanding choir member, Irene, attended the 50's styled wedding of her grandson.  

We wish all those concerned a long and happy marriage.

In the evening a party of choir members and family headed to Kilworth Open Air Theatre to see a performance of Thoroughly Modern Millie. It was, in our estimation, one of the best shows we have seen there. It was brilliant! The performers all sang and danced with exuberance, their comic timing was perfect and the costumes fab-u-lous!! 

 

9th July 2016

On a warmish Saturday evening members of the choir once again travelled to Kilworth House Hotel Theatre, nr Lutterworth. The first of the summer shows this year was "West Side Story", and what an excellent performance it was too. Wonderful singing, and energetic dancing drew the audience into the show. The creative backdrop and seamless moving of props made the story come alive. Everyone agreed it was a fabulous show. It made a change to sit and enjoy the show without the need for blankets.....and some choir members even ventured to have a picnic!!

 

 

27th June 2016

Following a week-end of concerts it was a welcome break from rehearsing to have the choir Summer Social. This was held in the newly refurbished "Barn", part of The Red Lion Pub, Rothwell. 
 

 The evening took the form of a quiz, prepared by choir member Lynne Parker and her husband, Kev. Teams of four competed against each other. The winners were "The Gees".....but it was a close run thing. Mid way through the evening there was a delicious buffet. Thank you to Maxine Reynolds for organising the event. 

 

 

4th January 2016

Burton Latimer Bowls Club was the venue for the Seagrave Singers "Post Christmas" social. The theme for the evening was fairground games! These were provided by the father of choir member, Linda Blatchley. Teams were formed and great fun was had by all, testing their skills with "Hoop-la", "Roll a penny" and "Golf Putting" to name a few. The evening concluded with a fish and chip supper, followed by a raffle.
