On Saturday 5th October we were treated to an exceptional evening of singing by the Cowbridge Male Voice Choir.  The glorious sound of the 45-strong male voice choir filled the 15th century church of St George with songs in a broad repertoire, sung in both English and Welsh.

Festival committee chairman Les Farris commented afterwards:

“This was a very successful evening, from all perspectives.  The audience was one of the most appreciative we’ve had at any of our Festival concerts, the choir members thoroughly enjoyed their first ever performance in Somerset – and wish to return to Hinton – and a modest profit was made to help fund next June’s week-long Festival.   I suspect that never before in the 500+ years of the church’s existence has it played host to such a large choir”.
