             UCS Singing Afternoon

Did you know that singing is good for your health and well-being? - even better, in singing with other people in a choir. If you haven’t sung for years or have never even tried, come along and have a go at our Singing Afternoon on Saturday 1st September 2pm-5pm. Our musical director, Mrs. Anne Wilde, will be taking us through some fun rounds of easy part songs at our regular rehearsal venue at Trinity Church, 230 Audenshaw Road, M34 5WP. There is no charge and refreshments will be provided.


It is always a joy when new people want to come and join us. We will be starting rehearsals for our new Advent programme on 10th September. If you would like to get involved, please contact Anne.
