The London Welsh Male Voice Rugby Choir - in Hay

There will be a special concert at St Mary's Church on Saturday 13th May, at 7pm.
The London Welsh Male Voice Rugby Choir will be singing, supported by the Black Lion Singers.
The concert is in memory of Betty Weir, who died last year. She was half of the North Weir Trust, a charity which gives grants to local people who wish to advance their education or extend their professional expertise through voluntary work. It's been giving grants for twenty five years now, and Vera North, the other half of the partnership, is still involved.
When Betty died, it was decided to put on a special event to raise money for the North Weir Trust, and this is the result.
Roger Beetham, from the B&B at the back of Hay Cinema Bookshop, has been singing with the choir since 2005, when it toured New Zealand with the British and Irish Lions. The choir also sang at the closing ceremony of the 2012 Olympics - so they're used to big crowds!
Tickets are £12, and are available from Roger and Dawn Beetham on 01497 820408, Eric Pugh on The Pavement, and Jackson and Gill Opticians in Backfold.
There will be a bar serving wine and soft drinks.
