June Summer Concert

The Dukeries Singers’ Summer Concert will be on Saturday 15th June, starting at 7.00pm, at Jubilee Hall, A616 Wellow Road, Ollerton NG22 9AP.

After their sell-out Christmas concert, the Summer Concert is sure to be equally popular. Special guest performers The Gentlemen will also be thrilling the audience once again with their harmonies, and Dukeries Singers’ own Danny Twomey promises laughs galore with his solo rendition of ‘Paddy and the Bricks’.

The customary buffet is included in the cost of £10.00 per person. Tickets can be obtained from any member of the Dukeries Singers or from Committee member Barry Callieu on 01623 822200 or via email at dukeriessingers@icloud.com.

Certificate of Appreciation

Ashley Argile was awarded a Certificate of Appreciation for his technical assistance ongoing from 2023 with the new public address system, which had its first outing at the Christmas concert. Ashley continues to assist Dukeries Singers with their website.

New Events Organiser

Keeping it in the family, Ashley Argile’s spouse Anne-Marie has graciously agreed to become Dukeries Singers’ new Events Organiser as the choir develops its new provision for performing at weddings and on other bespoke occasions.

Looking forwards

The Dukeries Singers is keen to welcome new and additional singers and musicians to the male and female inclusive choir, encouraging ‘secret shower singers’ to get involved.

Membership costs just £2.50 per week and includes training and advice for those that want it. Non-members that want to see and hear the Singers practising are welcome to go along to one or two regular practice sessions to discover if it appeals to them.

Practice sessions take place every Wednesday at the Methodist Church Hall on Forest Road, New Ollerton at 7.00pm. Dates in April are 3rd, 10th, 17th and 24th.

Light refreshments are usually available. Contact John Banbury with any queries by phone or text on 07759 086132.
