We're just back from the Sweet Adelines Region 31 convention and competition at the Sage, Gateshead. As 2016 barbershop champions we were performing in the Saturday evening showcase and gave the audience a sneak peak of our Vegas package. If you would like to see the full package and hear some of our fabulous quartets and small groups, please see the Performances page for details on our two June shows! We'll be joined on the evening of 24th June by supremely talented jazz singer Todd Gordon.

We had a fabulous time singing at Greyfriar's Kirk in our concert; Sparkle and Song. A fantastic venue, perfect for ringing chords to the rafters! We had a lovely warm audience and raised some money for our Vegas trip so big success all round! We are also looking forward to our final Sing Out of the year at St. Giles Cathedral for the charity Bloodwise - sure to be festive and full of joy!


A couple of our members were involved in a Christmas video for a fundraising campaign for the charity Cyrenians.
