FREE SUNDAY CONCERT IN WEST LOOE
15 Sep 2019
After a good Sunday lunch, take a stroll alongside Looe river to the West Looe Quayside Centre where you can while away an hour or so enjoying the singing of Polperro Fishermen's Choir. Seating is available but it's not formal so you can come and go as you wish. Dogs are welcome too, especially if they give us some appreciative barks! It's all free and we hope to see you there.
LAST CHANCE FREE SUMMER CONCERT IN POLPERRO!
4 Sep 2019
Location: Polperro Methodist Chapel. This is the last of our famous, free summer concerts this year. As the nights are getting dark and chilly earlier now, this one will be in the chapel where the choir started 96 years ago, in 1923. The Cornwall Air Ambulance and the Stroke Association will benefit from any donations so please give generously. The WRECKERS will be round the corner in the Old Millhouse Inn afterwards.
'AT HOME' IN POLPERRO CHAPEL
28 Aug 2019
As the days are getting shorter, this concert will be 'at home' in Polperro Methodist Chapel. The Stroke Association is one of the charities to benefit this year, in memory of our great friend and singer, Ray Bowden (with the microphone in the picture). The Wreckers will make themselves at home in the Old Millhouse Inn afterwards!
SINGING FOR CHARITY
14 Aug 2019
Enjoy some open-air singing on Polperro fish quay and support Cornwall Air Ambulance and the Stroke Association at the same time. Our President Richard Madeley is strongly behind the drive to raise funds for a new air ambulance so we are doing our bit to help. The concert is free but, if you like our singing, toss some money into the bucket. The WRECKERS will be in the Old Millhouse Inn afterwards.
RAISING FUNDS FOR LOOE RNLI
13 Aug 2019
We have helped raised many thousands of pounds for the RNLI in various different locations around the country so please come and enjoy this free concert in Looe RNLI boathouse, which has great acoustics and seating too! Every donation, large and small, makes a difference. (Photo copyright Looe RNLI / Ian Foster.)

It's Looe carnival week so what better way to spend Thursday evening than listening to Polperro Fishermen's Choir singing a range of our popular songs in Looe lifeboat house. The concert is free but - be warned! - there may be some very scary Lions around trying to blag some coins from you! (Photo with acknowledgements to the iLoveLooe website)
AT HOME IN POLPERRO
31 Jul 2019
The choir will be 'at home' in Polperro for a free summer concert on 31st July. It will be by the Fish Quay (or in the Methodist Chapel if wet). The Stroke Association is one of the charities to benefit this year in memory of our great friend and singer, Ray Bowden. The Wreckers will be in the lovely Old Millhouse Inn afterwards. (The painting is by June Drysdale from our 1982 LP. These days we have best-selling CDs on offer!)
WHERE TO FIND US IN JULY
From 1 Jul 2019 to 31 Jul 2019
We are starting this year's famous free concerts in Polperro this month. We'll be singing at 7.30 pm by the Fish Quay on 3rd, 17th and 31st July (all Wednesdays). The concerts are free but we will be collecting for Cornwall Air Ambulance and the Stroke Association. The Wreckers will also be in Polperro every Wednesday evening, as well as at the Polperro Water Carnival and in West Looe on 5th July to welcome the Luggers for the regatta.

PHIL CARRIGAN'S LATEST BOOKS
29 Jun 2019
Our multi-talented musical director is an author as well and has now published several lovely well-illustrated stories, often involving mischief, magic and animals - even including Polperro Fishermen's Choir and the Wreckers transformed into rather naughty singing black bunnies in 'Honey Bee Meadow'! Phil's latest books are: 'Hermie in the Garden', featuring the friendly little dog who often sleeps through our rehearsals; and 'The Enchanted Mine (Not)' where our illustration comes from.
