The opening week of August 2023 was a busy one for the boys in blue. A wedding on Wednesday found us at St Illtyd’s Church, Llantwit Major (a favourite venue for us) where the weather gave a brief respite from July’s leaden skies and stair rod rain and an enthusiastic congregation boosted Calon Lân to the rafters.
On Friday the 4th a fairly short notice engagement at the Vale of Glamorgan Brewery on the Atlantic Trading Estate was very well attended. (No surprise there!). After spirited renditions of a few of the great Welsh songs from our repertoire along with popular and musical theatre favourites, our esteemed musical director made her excuses and left.
Speaking on condition of anonymity a committee member informed your scribe that vast quantities of ale were then consumed by the choristers and even more spirited singing broke out. I understand that extra brewery shifts are being organised to remedy the beer deficit. We look forward greatly to a return visit, as does the Vale of Glamorgan Brewery – with lively anticipation.
