Two Eighty-year-olds celebrated in 2015

St Francis Church in Welwyn Garden City celebrated its 80th Anniversary this year and presented a Flower Festival over the weekend 4th/5th July 2015.

Welwyn Garden City Male Voice Choir also entered its 80th year in 2015 and the church dedicated one of the displays to the choir.


A spectacular sell-out 80th Anniversary Concert took place on Saturday 14th November 2015 at the Hawthorne Theatre Welwyn Garden City.

To mark that milestone, our Patron, Bryn Terfel said:

Am garreg filltir i'r Côr gyrraedd 80 o flynyddoedd. Anhygoel i feddwl yr holl waith caled i baratoi a dysgu darnau newydd a pherfformio mewn amryw o gyngherddau dros y blynyddoedd. Sawl arweinydd, cyfeilydd ac wrthgwrs aeloda o'r Côr a'i gwaith caboledig. Heb os nac onibai cerddoriaeth yn creu y fath atgofion o'r gorffennol y presennol ac i'r dyfodol. Bydded iddo barhâu. Mwynhewch y dathlu!

What an impressive milestone for the choir to reach their 80th Anniversary! Incredible to think of the repertoire amassed, the concerts already performed and the hard work and dedication of conductors, accompanists and choristers. Long may it continue that music can form such incredible memories past, present and future. Enjoy the celebrations!
