Choir 17 is a friendly, uplifting, modern mixed choir who aim to sound great and feel great! We sing popular music, mostly from the 1970s to 2000s, with the odd golden oldie and modern classic thrown in. Everything is taught by ear so you don’t need to be able to read music, just bring your love for music and your enthusiasm to try something new.
Singing in a choir is scientifically proven to be great for your health and wellbeing: it’s also a fantastic way to make friends and feel a sense of achievement. For more information head to www.choir17.com.

After a threat from the fearsome tiger Shere Khan forces him to flee the jungle, a man-cub named Mowgli embarks on a journey of self-discovery with the help of panther, Bagheera, and free spirited bear, Baloo.
As lovely to behold as it is engrossing to watch, The Jungle Book is the rare remake that actually improves upon its predecessors – all while setting a new standard for CGI. Raised by a family of wolves since birth, Mowgli (Neel Sethi) must leave the only home he’s ever known when the fearsome tiger Shere Khan (Idris Elba) unleashes his mighty roar. Guided by a no-nonsense panther (Ben Kingsley) and a free-spirited bear (Bill Murray), the young boy meets an array of jungle animals, including a slithery python and a smooth-talking ape. Along the way, Mowgli learns valuable life lessons as his epic journey of self-discovery leads to fun and adventure.
