Welsh choir in Seaton for fundraiser

The Cymric

PORT TALBOT Cymric Male Voice Choir will visit The Gateway in Seaton for a fundraising concert on Saturday, October 7th.

For some years, Seaton and District Lions Club has brought a Welsh choir to the town for an annual concert.

The Cymric is one of the oldest choirs in Wales, having been established in 1911.

Its repertoire consists of folk songs, ballads, sturdy male choruses from the world of opera along with songs from popular stage musicals, Welsh Hymns along with contemporary songs.

Lions club member Ian Barradale said: “These are always popular concerts which are well attended, with any profits going to the Lions charity account.

“This money is then given out to local worthwhile causes.

“There will be a licensed bar available and the choir have said that they will be having an impromptu Welsh hour of song after the concert.”
The doors open at 7pm. Tickets are £10 and are available from Seaton Print and Design in Fore Street and Byrne Jones in Marine Place.
