All roads led to the Sage Gateshead on Saturday for what was to be the most amazing night of singing, with five choirs from Alnwick, two from Wooler and one from Seahouses.
All of these choirs had been brought together by Peter Brown, who joined in the party atmosphere with great gusto, wearing a very sparkly waistcoat in the second half.
He and Mick Lock had worked miracles with all the organising.
The accompanists and instrumentalists were all from the area, and were all superb.
The professional lady singer was excellent, but what made us all so proud was that all this wonderful talent came from our area, and most have connections with Alnwick Playhouse. We are very lucky to have this great place.
A grateful thanks to all those involved who gave many hours to make this a most memorable night.
