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.

Just to give a brief summary of who we are and what the show is all about.
Each year a group of us who work/have worked in the arts create a community production.
Everyone who is involved in the show does it for free because we want to offer the opportunity for as many people as possible within Waltham Forest to be able to enjoy and have fun with the arts.
There are no auditions to be part of the show, everyone is welcome as it’s about coming together and making a fun and exciting piece of musical theatre. We do audition for lead roles which this year are open for anyone who is in school years 7-13.
We also look for musicians, rehearsal pianists, backstage help and set and costume people to help make and create the performances.
This community production is not about individuals but about people coming together to create a huge production in an extremely short period of time.
No matter how much experience you have we want and need you!
This year we will be rehearsing at St Peters in the Forest, whose space we have used every year. And then we will be performing, for the first time, in Leyton Great Hall.
We have always had hundreds involved and want it to be just as fab this year.

Come and meet like minded women and join our sisterhood to explore the issue of women and our finances.

As women we should be able to have open discussions about what makes us who we are. Sometimes these topics can make us, or others, feel uncomfortable or like we cannot speak without judgement.
Introducing Awkward Talks, a series of meet ups created for women who wish to share, learn and grow in a safe, relaxed and open space.
The next event: Lets talk about Vaginas……
What does the perfect vulva look like? Do you think yours is unattractive, normal or beautiful? Can you name all the parts?
Come and join us to discuss all things vulvas, their diversity, uniqueness and beauty.

Tickets £3 and half the money will be donated to The Samaritans charity.
