The Rematch! Sat 17 March 2018

We’re teaming up once again with The Magnificent AK47 men’s choir after they made the long, arduous journey over from eastern parts last year.  Lowering the tone with their deep, Georgian-inspired harmonies and serious silliness, those Magnificent Men of Ashton Keynes and their multi-hatted singing machine will be taking to the stage to prove they can truly live up to the claim of perhaps being the best all bloke singing troupe ever to escape from the depths of North, North Wiltshire.

This time we’re on neutral territory in St Sampson’s handsome church in Cricklade.

There will be a bar, lots of blokes with hats, us and the amazing CJ band! What’s not to like?

Tickets available here.
