We were invited by the BBC to perform on Saturday 12th July at their World War 1 at Home live event, which coincided with The Wolverhampton & Black Country Show on the weekend of 12th & 13th July 2014. The venue was West Park in Wolverhampton. The newly renamed show supersedes the popular City Show. We were scheduled to perform at approx. 3.30pm for 20 mins, then at 5.30pm for 30 mins. The BBC WW1 at Home event will be broadcasting live on BBC Radio WM 95.6.
The choir feel very privileged to have been asked to take part in this very special event in Wolverhampton. Selected war time pieces from our concert the previous evening at The Goodyear Pavilion will be sung at West Park.
Just wanted to say a huge thank-you for making the WW1 at Home event such a success in Wolverhampton. Around 11,000 people turned up over the two days and the feedback was really positive. I hope you all enjoyed it.
Thanks again! – Louise Brierley, BBC
