‘S Wonderful

Thames Voyces conclude their Golden Jubilee season with a celebration of seven hundred years of choral music, “S Wonderful” at 7:30pm on Saturday 30th June at St Mark’s Church, Popeswood Road, Binfield.

This choral cavalcade takes the audience on a musical journey, from “Sumer is a cumin in”, the earliest example of six-part polyphony, a copy of which was discovered in the grounds of Reading Abbey, through the fifteenth century with madrigals and sacred music of composers such as Wilby and Victoria. Also included are choral gems from Bach, Mozart and Elgar, before we are brought into the twentieth century with music from modern maestro’s such as Eric Whitacre with his idyllic “Seal Lullaby”, based on words by the English writer Rudyard Kipling.

The concert will be conducted by their Musical Director, Nick Austin with accompaniment by Ben Giddens.

The date and time for the widely-anticipated re-opening of Royal Foresters on Ascot’s London Road, (next to Heathfield School), has been announced as Thursday 12th July at midday. The 140-year-old venue will have been entirely redesigned, following a £multi-million build investment by its new owners, Oakman Inns.

The local community will be especially keen to see the pub re-opened after three years, after its future as a local amenity had been under threat from various developers.

Royal Foresters’ General Manager, Malcolm Coulter, said: “Our company’s CEO, Peter Borg-Neal, has always loved this site and was determined to turn it into a really top quality pub and to give it the status the area deserves. I firmly believe that everything we have planned and developed here will meet that aspiration.” Malcolm is joined by Jessica Bliss as his Deputy Manager and Head Chef, Lee McMullen (pictured outside Royal Foresters).
