Choiroke 2013 choir festival at The Hawth, Crawley

If you’ve seen Gareth Malone’s “The Choir” series on TV then you’ll have an idea of what “Choiroke” is about – people who get together to sing, have fun, and put on a terrific show for family and friends. That was definitely the case at the Hawth Theatre in Crawley on Saturday night – Choiroke 2013 was in town!

Choiroke gives amateur choirs a chance to perform on a professional stage, which they otherwise would not be able to do. It’s also a great community event – and as you will see from the photos the audience gets involved as well…

Choiroke is organized by Team Bravo, a group of local business people whose aim is to revitalize the Gatwick area by connecting businesses with the community, under the leadership of CEO Alan Williamson. Choiroke’s driving forces are Producer Louise Camby and Musical Director Kaytie Harding.

I understand that plans are already afoot for Choiroke 2014 so if you’d like to get involved you can find out more on the Choiroke website. You may also like to visit charity sponsors Dizzy’s website, who do great work supporting people with diabetes.

Here’s a selection of my photos from this year’s event:
