I am excited to announce that, after a gap of at least thirty years, the RSCM Committee in South East Wales is organising a Choral Festival in the wonderful setting of Tintern Abbey. The Festival will take place on Saturday16th June at 3.00pm but in the event of inclement weather it will transfer to Newport Cathedral. There is a charge for admission of £6 for non-singers and members of the congregation are requested to bring a suitable folding chair to sit on during the service and to dress accordingly, as the Abbey is open to the elements!! If anyone is interested in joining the choir at the Festival, please contact John Granger 01633 769684 for full details. There will be a coach leaving St John’s early in the morning as the first rehearsal begins at 10.00. There will be limited parking in Tintern and the Festival will open to the congregation at 2.30pm.
