On 30 April 2017, The BlueBelles were invited to perform for an afternoon concert at the Pewsey Heritage Centre. We had sung at a similar event 18 months previously which was a great success. The difference this time is that instead of being one of several local acts, we were the only group performing. As such we put together 2 half hour sets to entertain the audience whilst they enjoyed afternoon tea.
Sunday 30 April 2pm
A few weeks before the concert we did get into a bit of a pickle when it was discovered that in fact neither of our 1st Altos could make the event. However, luckily our good friend and singer Yael was able to help out at the last minute and did a superb job of holding the Alto 1 line together all by herself after just two rehearsals with us.

The Pewsey Heritage Centre
The collection is housed in what was once the foundry building of Whatley & Hiscock, agricultural engineers.
Indeed, the machinery of this firm formed the basis for the Heritage Centre. When engineering work ceased, the local history society set up a museum to conserve the heavy machinery. This has grown into the resource you can see today.
We have a couple of events to sing at in June. On Sunday 18 June you can find us in Marlborough alongside Great Western Harmony and The Penistone Ladies Choir. Then on Saturday 24 June we will be singing alongside Upavon Military Wives Choir at St Francis School Fete.
