Ash Wednesday – March 5th 2014

Due to a service taking place at the Minster, our rehearsal on Ash Wednesday has to be moved and will take place at Ewesley Road Methodist Church, Chester Road, Sunderland, starting at the usual time.

Dinner Date – June 6th 2014

A date for your diary. On Friday June 6th 2014 we are taking over the restaurant of The Rosedene, Queen Alexandra Road, Sunderland, SR2 9BT, to hold a dinner for members and their families, patrons and friends. Details will be circulated shortly but the cost will be £20 per person (excluding drinks). It will be a great opportunity for everyone to mix in a more social setting.
