Help Lace City get to Kansas City in 2024

This year we were absolutely delighted to win the UK & Netherlands regional Sweet Adelines competition with our cabaret-themed performance.

This means we will go on to represent the UK & Netherlands at the international competition in Kansas City, Missouri in 2024, competing against barbershop choruses from all around the world. We are so excited to be showcasing some amazing local talent on the international stage.

Can you help us with our fundraising efforts, to help reduce the cost of travel overseas, and to help as many of these amazing women and girls as possible to represent Nottinghamshire in the world championships of barbershop?

Lace City Chorus at Nottinghamshire Pride

On Saturday 29th July about 40 members of Lace City Chorus had the honour of performing to the crowds at Nottingham Pride.  This was the first time the Chorus has performed at Pride and thoroughly enjoyed being part of this important and joyful event.

We sang a selection of songs from the repertoire, including a "Firework" medley, "One Day Like This" and finished with "This is Me" from the Greatest Showman with backing from onstage drummers.   Some chorus members joined the march with friends, family or their employer; others enjoyed watching as the vibrant, loud and colourful march went past.   It was the perfect day for it - the sun was shining, the crowds were amazing and the chorus were delighted to share in the joy of the occasion. 

Lace City Chorus brings home the Gold!

Earlier this month, we won gold at the women’s barbershop championships earning us the title of the UK and Netherlands champions. The medal also means that we will represent the UK at the international contest in America next year.

The World for Christmas

A cappella singers, Lace City Chorus, are returning to the stage with a show packed full of Christmas magic. The performance will take you on a journey of Christmas traditions from around the world, with some of the chorus’ dynamic show songs thrown in too.
