The Yeovilton Military Wives Choir will be performing at this year’s Home Farm Fest in June, it has been announced.
Following their recent sell-out performance at the Octagon Theatre in Yeovil, the Military Wives Choir is sure to be a highlight on the Friday evening, known as ‘Posh Frocks & Wellies’ night.
Home Farm Fest takes place from Friday 6th to Sunday 8th June and is a family-friendly outdoor music festival, now in its ninth year. It raises money for Somerset disaster relief charity the Piers Simon Appeal and its ‘School in a Bag’ initiative.
Mandy Lilley from the Military Wives Choir said, “We are delighted to be appearing at Home Farm Fest 9. We will be performing songs from the Military Wives Choir albums, featuring songs by Coldplay, U2, Gary Barlow and the Number 1 from The Military Wives Choir, ‘Wherever You Are’. We are hoping to provide a classical, choral feel to the Posh Frocks & Wellies night at Home Farm Fest. We will also be wearing our Posh Frocks & Wellies!”
The Yeovilton Military Wives Choir was established a year and a half ago following the success of Gareth Malone’s original Military Wives Choirs, made famous through the popular BBC series ‘The Choir’.
Home Farm Fest takes place in the fields and orchards around the Piers Simon Appeal’s base in Chilthorne Domer near Yeovil, where more than 50 bands and artists are expected to perform over the three day event.
It is the largest fundraising event of the year for the charity, which runs the School in a Bag initiative delivering rucksacks full of stationery, learning resources and eating utensils to poor, orphan and disaster-affected children. So far it has helped almost 45,000 vulnerable children and the money raised over the Home Farm Fest weekend will help the charity continue its life-changing work around the world.
