Something Olde, Something New

This Easter, for one show only (at Smiths Alternative).

The Shiny Bum Singers present “Something Olde, Something New”.
The songs cover a variety of subjects which never grow old: the workplace, bosses and politicians.
Come to see if we’ve “borrowed” your favourite song, learn the new words and sing-a-long.

Hop to it !

Vale Kerry Kennedy

Kerry Kennedy, a member of the Shiny Bum Singers, has sadly passed away on 10 April 2019 after a short illness.

Kerry is an unimaginable loss.  He was a good friend to many and very considerate of others, and gave a lot of his time in recent years to the Shiny Bum Singers while enjoying retirement.

He will be greatly missed.  We already miss him for all he contributed to the Shiny Bums – to keep us at our best and to keep us in line!
