COCKERMOUTH LIVE! held its AGM recently and reflected on a very successful event. The festival featured over 90 performances from 500 performers in 18 venues, a remarkable achievement for a small town. As well as music of all genres, from folk, to classical, to rock, to DJ and Techno, the festival celebrated dance, drama, poetry and the visual arts.
There were headline performances from the comedy scriptwriter and producer Henry Normal and ’70s pop sensation Kiki Dee, who eventually got to perform in Cockermouth in October, having lost her voice on the Live! weekend.
New venues for 2019 included Koppers, the Hub (King’s Church) and Cockermouth Castle, which proved an ideal venue for the Mechanics Band, Sing In and Owt Community Choir and the Alte Musik ensemble. Our thanks to Lord and Lady Egremont for opening the grounds of their home for the benefit of all.
AT CHRIST CHURCH ANGEL VOICES
The Castlegate Singers will be presenting their Christmas Concert on 7th December at 7.30pm. This will be the first Christmas performance with their new musical director, Anne-Marie Kerr and new accompanist Fiona Weakley.
Seasonal works from England, France and Spain will feature and of course there will be the opportunity for the audience to join in with some well-loved carols.
Guests performing for this concert are the Gala Trio. These local musicians, Angela Turner (flute) Gabrielle Saunders (oboe) and Anne Louise Rothwell (clarinet) will complete this evening of uplifting Christmas cheer.
Tickets are £10.00 and entrance is free for accompanied children.
Were you once a member of the choir and still have choir music? If so, Billy Bowman’s shop has an ‘amnesty box’. Returned copies will be most welcome.

COCKERMOUTH SCOTTISH COUNTRY DANCE CLUB
Our last dance class of October was an autumn-themed night with everyone dressing in the colours of autumn. The Lorton Road Hall was decorated with green, yellow and orange leaves with hedgehogs, squirrels and little furry woodland creatures in every corner! Some dancers had sewn leaves on their outfits and there were some spectacularly decorated hats. At the break, Linda had made an apple cake to share with everyone and we had dances on the programme called ‘Autumn Leaves’ and ‘An Autumn Posy’.
Our next event is a Nice and Easy Dance at Newbiggin on 23rd November and then we shall celebrate St. Andrew’s Night on 30th November with a live band and dance at the Braithwaite Village Hall. There is a good floor and space for supper to be laid out in a room separate from the dancing.
