Loaf Pottery Presents Afternoon Tea with Bangor Ladies Choir
Loaf Pottery and Coffee Shop is a new arts centre and café located on Main Street in Crawfordsburn. It is run by NOW Group, an award winning social enterprise that supports people with learning difficulties and autism into jobs with a future.
The Pottery have teamed up with Bangor Ladies Choir to host an afternoon featuring performances from the choir as well as NOW Group participants. There will be stalls selling items from the pottery and a raffle with fantastic prizes. All proceeds will go to the NOW Group Community Opportunities Group Arts Fund to buy equipment for participants with learning difficulties and autism, support them to attend events and various other arts activities that will help develop their skills and independence.
In 2016 Bangor Ladies Choir celebrated 40 years of singing together. From a choir which began with 11 members (two of the founder members are still with the choir today) to a choir of now 65 members, they have gone from strength to strength, singing in many prestigious venues throughout Europe and beyond. They have also travelled to and performed in both Canada and USA.
The Choir have also sang with many well-known artistes such as Aled Jones, Hayley Westenra, Jonathan Ansell, world renowned Soprano, Lesley Garrett, Phil Coulter and recently Brian Kennedy. Next year their annual concert in May will feature Peter Corry as the Guest Artist.
