Christmas with the Kingsmen

The Kingsmen have had a really busy festive season with many paid performances and a lot of charity ones too, ranging from singing for the Children's Hospice South West at Princesshay in Exeter to singing on Christmas Eve at the Buckland Tout Saints Hotel and the Cottage Hotel, Hope Cove.

They had a stop over en route to Hope Cove at the Crabshell Inn, Kingsbridge Quay for more singing (and delicious pizzas). The Crabshell Inn who sponsor the Kingsmen is where they were founded 26 years ago so it was particularly fitting that they performed there again this year. The Christmas Eve performances have been going for 23 years and MD Roy Hann has directed every one!

Another first was the introduction of Richard Hann (Roy's 18yr old grandson) to his first Kingsmen performance. What is particularly impressive is he has only been with the chorus for 4 months and learned the Christmas repertoire in that short space of time.

The picture shows Richard (on the left of Roy) and Josh Vaughan (grandson) on Roy's right, all flanked by Andrew Vaughan (left) and Gary Rowe who are Roy's sons-in-law. Gary is also Deputy Music Director.
The other pictures were taken at Royal William Yard, Plymouth at their Christmas Fayre organised by 'Urban Splash'. Santa Claus arrived in the small harbour aboard a RNLI Lifeboat and was sung ashore to 'Santa Claus Is Coming To Town'!

We'd like to wish all our supporters a happy, healthy and successful new year.
