The President of the Royal Choral Society is HRH The Duke of Kent who last year celebrated his eightieth birthday. It was decided to hold a concert to mark this and the many years of service that the Duke has put in on behalf of not just the Royal Choral Society but many other charities throughout the UK.
It was also thought that it would be a good idea to make it a party for the choir, their families and friends and choir supporters who faithfully attend our concerts – as a way of saying “thank you” for your support.
And so on 12 May in the Great Hall at Central Hall Westminster the choir entertained their guests to a delightful concert, preceded by a wonderful reception and followed by a further reception with delicious “puddings”. The wine flowed, even on Methodist premises, and it was of course supplied by Domaine du Grand Mayne with specially printed labels marking the occasion – and delicious it was too!
