Choral concerts
The Lyric Singers, SLYC and Lirica are set to shower your evenings with summer sunshine. Grab your diary and hold a date for an evening of song and choral delights. Sedgefield Lyric Singers present “Bring Me Sunshine” this summer’s concert at The Parish Hall, Sedgefield, on Friday, July 5th and Saturday, July 6th starting at 7:30pm. “Bring Me Sunshine” will feature our three local choirs: the sonorous Sedgefield Lyric Singers; the enthralling “Lirica” and our talented youth choir, SLYC. Being packed full of old favourites and new releases, from show songs to jazz tunes, haunting melodies to toe-tapping treats, this summer’s programme promises to bring some sunshine into everyone’s life, whatever the weather outside.

Seating numbers are limited, so please organise your tickets early to avoid disappointment. Tickets (£6 for adults, £5 for under 16’s) are available from choir members, Tickety Boo or by calling 01740 621196. Both SLYC (for young people aged 7 to 18 years) and The Lyric Singers welcome newcomers who already enjoy singing, or who would like to give choral singing a go. Auditions are not required, neither is it essential to be able to read music. Anyone interested in finding out more can contact our musical director, Rob Guest, or our secretary, Avril Hannon (01740 622512). Alternatively, drop into a rehearsal at Ceddesfeld Hall on a term time Friday evening at 6pm (SLYC) or 7.30pm (Lyric Singers). Remember to pop those dates in your diary, procure your tickets and prepare yourself for an evening of summer sunshine - no sun cream necessary!
Sedgefield Players June production
Sedgefield Players
The next Players’ production will be a Variety evening, where the entertainment will include the performance of a One Act Play ‘Acting, it’s not plumbing’, where Jilly, played by Jean Hewling, valiantly attempts to recruit members to her drama group and starts an acting class where she meets an interesting cast of characters and comedy ensues!

The evening will also include a pie and pea supper, and therefore the tickets are at the slightly more expensive cost of £10. Get them while you can as it’s certain to be a great evening of entertainment. Ticket information is on the poster below right. Choral concerts

At the end of July, the SPYS will take to the stage with their production of Roald Dahl’s ’Charlie and the Chocolate Factory’, which is sure to be a brilliant production. And you may remember from last month that the Players got through to the Northern Final of the All England Theatre Festival with their production of ’War Brides’. Sadly, it didn’t win but the cast (below) had a fantastic time at Washington, enjoying the chance to show their work to a new audience.
