Witchford Voices Tour to Belgium

Posted on: 11th Jun 2012

Grey's of Ely were approached Full Ely Standard News Article
by Keith Gallois, to provide our largest Prestige coach for the Witchford's very own choir "Witchford Voices". 

The Choir had a weekend tour of the beautiful medieval city of Bruges. This was the backdrop for Witchford Voices' open air concert in the famous Markt, or market square, to an audience that quickly grew to a large and enthusiastic crowd. 

The aim of this concert was to raise money for an elderly people's home in Damme that they would be visiting the next day, and the steady stream of Euros dropped into their suitcase and eventually amounted to over £100.

Many choir members visited nearby sites of World War One battles. At one, the guide had located the headstone of a soldier originally from Witchford, who remarkably had died 95 years earlier to the day of the visit.
Monday started with something a little different - a breakfast flashmob. As fellow guests enjoyed their bread and cheese, two Voices stood and began to sing. The sopranos and altos joined them, followed by tenors and men, until the whole choir was singing to the bemusement of staff and guests alike. When the song was over, they all sat and continued as if it hadn't happened. Lots of fun!

Grey's of Ely worked with local printing company "Digital Creations" to apply the custom vehicle graphics for the trip.

The whole trip was covered by local press and received much praise from the local community.
