The first half began with the combined Brigades of Matlock with a wonderful performance of The Greatest Showman and a charming rendition of Bim Bam which the audience really joined in with well. The angelic voice of Louise Blair was next on the programme and with beautiful singing accompanied by Tom Pilkington on the guitar, the audience raised the roof with their applause. Tom followed this with his amazing skills of singing and playing guitar with harmonica accompaniment. The first half of the evening was rounded off by the Matlock Ukele Group, Strummers who were persuaded to give an encore to their set of four entertaining pieces.

After an interval of refreshments including wonderful cakes and hot & cold drinks the audience returned to a full second half of the combined Rock Choirs of Choir Leader Tom Rigby who had travelled from Rotherham, Sheffield, Worksop and Chesterfield to join with the Matlock choir, which is based at MMURC (Wednesdays 7:30pm). The performance was recorded by Andrew Sheppard. and an edited recording is available to view on the link below.
