Major Oak entertaining the crowds at the Newark Festival
On the stroke of 11.00 am in the Market Square, the pitch pipe was blown and the chorus opened the festival with the beautiful Adele ballad Make Me Feel Your Love, closely followed by an Elvis favorite, Love Me. After several other songs we ended our set with The Lion Sleeps Tonight (Wimoweh) and our Beach Boys Medley featuring seven key changes!
After our performance we were invited into the market bar/cafe to sing for the staff and customers and were enthusiastically received, then a few of us went for a quiet wind-down drink in a pub garden, and of course sang a few more songs nuch to the delight of the clientelle there.
