5:00 PM on Friday 5th October

The LGN Community Choir is a friendly, lively choir set up in 2008 with the aim of attracting singers in the Lowton, Golborne, Newton & surrounding areas to meet in a friendly environment and enjoy singing together. As part of their 10th anniversary celebrations, they are performing a concert at St Matthew's at 5:00 PM on Friday 5th October. The choir gets rave reviews from those who have heard them, and, by way of recommendation, one of their accompanists is none other than David Wheeler! Please join us for an enjoyable occasion.
