The South Newington Singers next  big event is singing in the Chipping Norton Music Festival (CNMF) on Saturday March 4th at 3.15. pm

The CNMF is an amazing event which has been happening for the past 104 years, would you believe!  Over a thousand people, all from the local area will be taking part, of which we are a small part… There are over a hundred different categories of performance – all types of music and different instruments plus poetry and drama. All the performances are judged by professional adjudicators so we are being very brave in putting ourselves forward!

Members of the public are welcome to come and watch any performance (£1.50 for an audience day ticket) and there are also three special events happening too (even more special than the South Newington Singers, can you believe that?!)

– Craig Ogden’s giving a guitar recital on Sunday March 12th
– Dave Townsend’s leading a Folk Evening on Monday March 13th
– Anthony Williams will be giving piano masterclasses on Thursday 16th March.

All events are in the Chipping Norton Town Hall, programmes and tickets are on sale in the Jaffe & Neale bookshop in Chippy or the website www.cnmf.org.uk
