There are more free summer concerts to come in Polperro, either in the open-air by Polperro Fish Quay, or in Polperro Methodist Chapel if wet or dark. Polperro chapel and the choir's own music charity are the good causes selected to benefit from our collecting buckets this year, and we hope you benefit from some good singing too. The Wreckers are sure to be singing somewhere afterwards too, either on Polperro Big Green, or in the Ship Inn. See you there!

As well as Songs of Praise on 3rd July, we plan to sing for Looe RNLI in the lifeboat house on Thursday 28th July and Tuesday 9th August, both at 7.30pm. Seating will be available and the acoustics are excellent. Having had a concert slightly delayed by a 'shout' we should remind you that all the concerts are subject to any necessary RNLI operational decisions and precautions. As the RNLI is one of our favourite charities, please help us support their essential service with a donation.
