Oldbury

A concert in a beautiful church where the Quire was received well and given fantastic hospitality by the church members who laid on a spread of hot and tasty food. The smell of it cooking during the performance inspired the quires singing a wonderful evening.

Mow Cop

The quire spent a wonderful day performing on the giddy heights of Mow Cop over 1000 feet above sea level.

Mow Cop famous for its association with Primitive Methodism and managed by the National Trust had a day to celebrate the association.

The quire sang outdoors and in the Methodist Chapel and as usual sang for its supper although this time for lunch, which was excellent.


Almost at the top.



Bryan our very fashionable leader.

All Saints Church

Almost December and a cold evening saw the quire performing at All Saints Church Broseley. The first half was a selection of West Gallery Songs and Tunes the second half Christmas, early I know, but as always quire members sang them with enthusiasm.


The Village Band played well.


Bryan our leader looking to the heavens, either for divine inspiration or retribution.

Croft Castle



The Quire in the church at Croft  Photo by Ian West

A day at Croft Castle with only two quire members unable to make it through one of the wettest starts to a day this year. Our singing did bring out the sun and a wonderful light on which to end the day.

The church at Croft

The quire performed three songs and a band tune every hour in the castles Blue Room, what a wonderful venue.

Englesea Brook Concert


On an unusually hot traditional English June Summer afternoon and evening the quire performed at Englesea Brook Chapel to a good sized audience.

|Cream Teas were served on the lawn before the concert and cupa teas after, wonderful, just what the quire likes.

Thanks to the good people at Englesea.

Sopranos on the back pews.


Two of the four bass sitting on a very cosy penitence bench.

There was a lack of tenors, we normally have five, BUT Richard the sole male tenor supported by Lyn was in good voice and they excelled themselves for which the quire members were very grateful. Bryan the quire master supported them where he was able, Bryan is a bass singer when not conducting.
