The Kingsmen Harmony Chorus entered the Torbay Music Festival male barbershop competition held in Paignton Festival Hall and came away as winners with a distinction and glowing comments from Bryan Husband who is an adjudicator for the British & International Federation of Festivals. His concluding comment was, quote: "An excellent performance both technically and artistically". The picture shows Music Director Roy Hann (holding the shield) and a few of the guys displaying the silverware at their very next rehearsal evening.

This is the third music festival barbershop competition in succession that the Kingsmen have won following the Plymouth Music Festival and the Saltash Performing Arts Festival successes. This all bodes well for the Kingsmen who are performing at the BABS National Barbershop Convention in Bournemouth BIC on 26th May and will be competing against 40 other choruses from across the UK.

They are also busy fund raising for a 12 day tour of the USA in May 2018 where they will be visiting and performing with three choruses in Pennsylvania, Washington DC and New York.

The Kingsmen raise funds to maintain their chorus and develop their performance levels as they have to find funds for professional coaching, rehearsal rooms, equipment, uniforms and travel, which takes them to many venues at home and abroad. All of this helps enrich and develop the chorus and enables them to maintain their ability to raise funds for the many charities both local and national that they support. They have raised in excess of £101,000 for the charities since their inception in September 1991. Charities supported are Crohn's & Colitis UK, Children's Hospice SW, Victim Support, Help For Heroes, Save the Children, Cancer Research UK and the Chestnut Appeal for Prostate Cancer.
