The Choir like to socialise during the year.

Christmas Dinner ~ Kettering Golf Club
A Christmas Party Ditty ~ Sung to the tune of "Good King Wenceslas"
The Seagrave Singers all set out
The Golf Club was their venue
For a night of merriment
Fun was on the menu
Brightly shone the sequins there
All had dressed up smartly
Glitter sprinkled in their hair
For the Christmas party.
First came Kay with magic wand
Gaining our attention
Setting quizzes and card games
Played with concentration
Then the Pass the Parcel came
With gifts and forfeits laden
Round and round the table went
Treats for every maiden
Then it was the time to eat
All were feeling merry
Turkey, salmon and nut roast
Posset, pud and jelly
What a night of joy we had
The smiles and laughs were hearty
Sharing fun with all our friends
At the Seagrave party.

Kilworth Theatre Outing ~ "Joseph and His Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat"
The evening pf the 18th August 2018 saw a small but determined band from The Seagrave Singers (& hangers on), convene in the picnic area of Kilworth House Theatre garden. Previous visits have proven to be quite cold but not that evening, the usual rugs were not needed during the performance. A pleasant picnic in good company was followed by, and I quote, "Probably the best thing we ever seen here!" ~ Ian Proctor "hanger on".
Great show with a fabulous cast and endlessly singable tunes. Also a very differnt depiction of the "Rainbow Coat" song using wellies.
I think I can speak for us all......."It was brilliant!!"

Our "Annual Summer Social Evening" this year was a bring and share supper buffet, and entertainment provided by various members of the choir.
The buffet was amazing with a great variety of mainly home made delights.
The entertainment was great fun with a variety of piano pieces from our MD, poems, a "Sea-Shanty", a comedy sketch, solo's, a duet, a "virtual" performance from a member who could not be with us on the night, with the finale being a hilarious comedy turn. We have such talent hidden in our choir and it was lovely to see our Stars Shine!!
It was a wonderful night and a great way to finish before our summer break. We will return to rehearsals on 3rd September 2018.

Kilworth Theatre Outing ~ "Guys and Dolls"
I wasn't sure what to expect when I booked to see the show, with friends from The Seagrave Singers, and didn't really know the storyline or indeed the music, but did I have a surprise in store!
It was an all singing, all dancing extravaganza with superb costumes, set design and performance. The music and lyrics by Frank Loesser, are adapted from Damon Runyon short stories.
There were two main storylines; Adelaide, determined to marry her long-time fiancee Nathan, who preferred gambling to her company! The part of "Adelaide" stole the show, with a great New York accent, she sang her way through some amusing lyrics.
The second storyline; that of Sarah Brown and her gallant band from the "Save-A-Soul Mission" who were desperately trying to recruit sinners.
As the show progressed it was great to be reminded of two popular songs, "Sit down your rockin' the boat" and "Luck be a lady tonight", performed with gusto and enthusiasm by the whole cast.
This proved to be and all-round excellent performance which I highly commend to you.

11th December 2017
Monday 11th December 2017 was the Seagrave Singers Christmas social night. We all got together in our Christmas finery to "let our hair down" at the Sondes Arms, Rockingham.
We enjoyed great food, laughter and games. Picking up candy canes using a candy cane in your mouth is a lot harder than it looks. Pass the parcel on the other hand is a lot easier, and you win every time! Some of us enjoyed a tipple (or two) and we even managed to burst into song.
A great night was had by all to end what has been an eventful year. So Happy Christmas to all and here's to exciting new beginnings for 2018.
