The part-time Piafs and Pavarottis of the Colliers Wood Chorus are looking forward to their biggest gig yet.

The 65-strong community choir are due to perform in the foyer of the Southbank Centre’s prestigious Royal Festival Hall later this month.

Keith Spears, a spokesman for the group, said: “We will be singing a variety of classical, popular and traditional songs from around the world in several different languages including Croatian, English, Fijian, Ghanain, Hebrew, Latin and Xhosa.”

The choir is an offshoot of Making Colliers Wood Happy - a community initiative offering everything from reading groups to ukelele classes. The choir’s free performance will take place at 1.30pm on January 24. For more information about the chorus call 020 8543 2179.
