Shropshire’s very own Military Wives Choir will be delighting late night shoppers in Shrewsbury’s busy Darwin Centre next week.
The 40-strong choir made up of women from the bases at RAF Shawbury and Tern Hill, near Market Drayton, will be performing at Marks and Spencers in the Centre from 6.30pm until 8.30pm on Wednesday, December 5.
It’s a thankyou to the store and manager Martin Woodhouse after they kited the choristers out with smart matching purple scarves and gloves, just gthe thing for a frosty night’s carol singing.
Martin said: “They asked us if we could help them and so we came up with the scarves and gloves and I think they look very smart.The local choir, which rehearses weekly, feature on the new Military Wives album, Stronger Together, conducted by celebrity choirmaster Gareth Malone.
The choir has given performances at the officers’ mess during the airbase’s annual reception, and at a fundraiser for the Royal British Legion at Shawbury Village Hall and in the run-up to Christmas, the choir is scheduled to appear at a number of shows.
These include a Help For Heroes fundraiser in Sutton Coldfield, and the annual Carols in the Square open air concert in Shrewsbury town centre on Wednesday, December 19, but next Wednesday’s is their next scheduled ‘live’ show.
“It should make the evening extra special for shoppers and create a fantastic atmosphere in the town and the centres.”
