Winners of the Mayor of Reading's Choir of the Year 2016

On the 4th March we won the Mayor of Reading's 'Let's Sing' (Reading Choir of the year) event at the Hexagon in Reading. We are particularly thrilled about winning as it kicks off the start of a very special year since, as well as the Ladies Association of British Barbershop Singers (LABBS), the Barberettes are also celebrating 40 years of singing in harmony.

Join us to celebrate 40 years of The Barberettes with a Divalicious concert showcasing both our recent collection of songs together with music from special guests
