Choirs joining forces for charity concert

THE popular Wells Good Afternoon Choir will present a charity concert at St Cuthbert’s Church in Wells on Saturday, October 7, at 7.30pm (doors open 7pm).

The choir is led by Good Afternoon Choir founder Grenville Jones with more than 60 enthusiastic members who are busy preparing their programme for the concert which will support Papyrus, a charity chosen by the members of the choir.

Special guests for the concert are Glastonbury Male Voice Choir (pictured) who sing an eclectic mix of material both sacred and secular. This year they celebrate their centenary year.

The Good Afternoon Choirs were started by Bath-based Grenville 13 years ago and there are now 23 across the South West of England with over 1,000 members ‘Singing in the Afternoon’.

There are no auditions to join and members of the Wells Good Afternoon Choir come from in and around the area, they meet every Tuesday afternoon from 2pm-4pm at St Thomas’ Church.

Tickets for the concert priced £10 available from or by calling 0844 888 9991.

Grenville said: “It is going to be a great night of music and we are absolutely delighted to be sharing the evening with the Glastonbury Male Voice Choir.”
