Did you hear us carol singing outside Calnan's butchers today? BBC Radio Oxford were so impressed that we sang out their Breakfast show at 8.50 this morning.
Thank you to everyone who braved the wind to sing and many thanks to Calnan's for providing bacon baps and hot tea!
ps photo not of us today, but at Basildon Park. Please let us know if you have photo from today.

Thanks to everyone who made our Quiz Night a success on Friday night, especially Alison Lane, our Quiz Master Extraordinaire, Jean Elliott for organising the evening and all the people who made soup and warmed it up (Alison Loader, I mean you!)
And congratulations to the Hagwarts for their win - 2nd time in a row, I think they need to be stopped next year!!
I'm looking forward to hearing how much money we raised for the choir funds...

Benson Choral Society is running a workshop on Walton’s Belshazzar’s Feast on Saturday 26 October at St Mary’s Church Wallingford. This is in preparation for a performance in Dorchester Abbey on 29 March 2014.
Message from BCS below:
"Performances of this work are relatively rare because of the resources needed. A large choir is required and the Society would welcome guest singers especially those with some familiarity with the work.
It is likely that you will be busy with your own concert schedule, but if you go to the workshop you can discuss your rehearsal commitment if you would like to sing in the concert. Full details can be found on http://www.bensonchoralsociety.org.uk/workshop_flier_13.pdf
Or just go along and enjoy a day’s singing."

We had a wonderful time at the Didcot First Clubs and Societies Fair, chatting to potential new members and audience, as well as networking with other clubs in the area. We started to make plans for a joint event, perhaps in 2014.
The stall looked wonderful, thanks to Helen's gorgeous posters. A BIG thank you to everyone who helped today.
