A pattern of performances was established over the next 3 years so that by 2007, the choir were singing three main concerts a year:
Christmas concerts at The Market Theatre; a Spring concert in April and Summer concerts in July. The choir also supported the Ledbury community
by singing at the civic and town carol services at St Michaels Parish Church; at the turning on of the Christmas lights and at other special Ledbury celebrations.
Different venues were tried for the Spring and Summer concerts both in Ledbury and as far afield as Hereford but our growing and loyal audience was drawn from the people of Ledbury and the surrounding villages. We continued our search for a local venue for a performing choir of seventy to eighty and combined audiences usually in excess of two hundred. In 2010 we sang a concert of ‘Songs from the Shows’ at Ledbury Rugby Club, in a cabaret-style setting with the audience at tables, rather than in the traditional rows of seating. The reaction from our audiences was very positive and so the Rugby Club became a regular venue for both our Spring and Summer concerts. It is now the ‘home’ of the choir for both concerts and weekly rehearsals on Monday evenings.
