What a wonderful evening we had at The Pride Of Bracknell Forest Awards last Friday 15th March at Sandhurst Military Academy.

Awe-inspiring venue all lit up for the awards ceremony

Sandhurst Military Academy is a very impressive venue indeed and I don’t mind admitting that I was a bit in awe of the scale of the building.

We were asked to sing at the end of the evening during the dessert course, as the closing act, in a huge hall packed with diners and award winners.

We sang a selection of our favourite songs including ‘Aquarious’, ‘Crazy Little Thing Called Love’, ‘How Deep Is Your Love’, ‘It’s Raining Men’, ‘We Go Together’ and ‘In The Mood’. 

Final preparations before going on stage

Our rendition of ‘We Go Together’ even got a special mention by Andrew Peach on his radio show on Saturday morning!  

I know we all thoroughly enjoyed singing to such an appreciative audience and received so many compliments as we left from people who complimented us on our song choice and costume – it was really wonderful to get such good feedback.

Our lovely PRO and tenor, Jo

We were very well looked after too by the event team who had pizza and wine waiting for us afterwards which went down very well indeed!
