[This event forms part of our Music Festival for 2015]
The choir started in 1924 and is celebrating its 90th Anniversary. It remains one of the premier male voice choirs in the country. Over the last ten years their reputation has gone from strength to strength: over the years the choir has won over 100 awards in major competitions, including a second place in the International Eisteddford. At this year’s annual Wentworth Festival, a festival that the choir has been very privileged to be invited to and attend since its inception, the choir continues its full year of celebrations to mark this very special occasion. The members are very enthusiastic about making this year one to remember.
Thanks to Tony Jermy the musical director and Irene Hill the accompanist, the choir continues to renew and revitalise its repertoire, from Songs from the Shows to new pop chart songs, while ensuring that the “Thurnscoe Sound” remains as compelling as it ever did.

On April 15, as the world marks Yom HaShoah -Holocaust Remembrance Day, we will be hosting a great global gathering of Believers for “I Will Not Forget.” The sad reality is that most Jewish people believe that Christians hate them. Millions went to their deaths during the Holocaust at the hands of people who claimed to be doing God's work by killing them.
We are going to stand together to say to the world that we support and defend Israel and the Jewish people. We are going to remember the darkness, but we are also going to pledge to be the light! We are going to show God's love to His Chosen People in a way that they have never seen and heard it before...and it is going to make a huge difference.
Thousands of churches all around the world have signed up to be part of “I Will Not Forget.” They will host congregations and small groups who will gather for this prophetic day.
