We rehearse Wednesday’s at 19:15 at Coventry Central Hall, Coventry City Centre
The Belles are over the moon to have been ranked 7th at LABBS convention in Bournemouth 30th October to 1st November 2015.
2015 has been a fantastic year for The Belles, with this result the cherry on top. There has been a lot of hard work and preparation leading up to LABBS 2015, with many fantastic coaches Nicky Salt, Cindy Hansen and Delyth Knight providing us with great help, inspiration and guidance.
On top of this our Assistant MDs were fantastic holding down the fort and continuing our progress while our MD Lucy Guess was on maternity leave, providing us with our greatest ever mascot, baby Belle Sophie Jayne. Our MDs, along with our fantastic and hard working music team, provided us with guidance, support and energy to bring out the best out of us and help us to focus on our goal of increasing our scores to over 70%.
Not only did we beat our goal of 70%, we surpassed this and achieved a score of 72.3% and increased our rankings for the third year in a row to 7th!
LABBS competition this year saw 69 Belles on stage including 15 first timers, making us the largest chorus competing this year! We are so proud of how hard all of our first timers worked and how well they have fitted in with the rest of the Belles, we couldn’t imagine being there without them.
To top it all off we’re so proud of the hard work of our members April and Lesley who created our beautiful yearbook and came away with the Pitchpipers Trophy for the best Yearbook!
Every Belle enjoyed every second of the weekend, loving the performance and the emotional roller coaster that is competing and we’re already looking forward to LABBS 2016 in Harrogate, which will be LABBS 40th anniversary.
The Belles have had many fabulous years at Nettle Hill Ansty but the time has come to move to a new home in the city centre.
We have moved to a new home in Coventry Central Hall, Coventry City Centre. We rehearse every Wednesday in Central Hall from 19:15 to 22:00.
The Belles had a fantastic training day on 23rd July, working hard on our 2016 convention package. We love our songs and are enjoying learning our new choreo.
We then got to share our new package including choreo with our friends and family. It was our first show in our new home and was great to see so many familiar faces supporting us.
As well as singing as often as we can both at rehearsal and performances and working on our songs for convention, the Belles also love nothing more than letting our hair down, have some fun and spend time together (and if we can raise funds for the choir at the same time, even better!)
On 26th February we had a fantastic night trying to master many forms of skittles as arranged by the fabulous Val. As well of skittles we of course also enjoyed cake and singing, could it really be a Belles night out without either?
We thought you’d enjoy some photos………
The Belles had a fantastic night at our annual dinner this year, with many really embracing our theme of a royal night out in celebration of the Queen’s birthday.
The Belles love to get involved in all types of musical shows, support members of our community and especially our singing sisters. We were delighted and honoured to be asked to perform in ‘Big Girls Blouse’ along side the wonderful, funny and talented Kate O’ Donnell. We performed in her show on both Friday 11th and Saturday 12th March and had such a fantastic time! #standbyyourtrans
The Belles were proud to take part in the Godiva Festival again this year and this year was even more special as not only did we perform ourselves we also accompanied the wonderful Afro Josh in the rhythm tent.
The Belles of Three Spires presented an evening of musical entertainment to raise vital funds for The Guide Dogs on 1st July.
Grosvenor Casinos provided the venue for the night and The Belles were joined by Lydian, Just Peachy and The Moonlighters. It was a fantastic evening of music in a relaxing and welcoming venue and just for the occasion, Lydian treated everyone of their version of Hound Dog!
The evening was a great success with a fabulous total of £842 raised for The Guide Dogs. The funds raised will go towards sponsoring a puppy named Belle as part of the Godiva Puppy Appeal.
The Belles are proud and delighted to have started off our summer winning trophies at both the Nuneaton and Leamington Music Festivals.
We had amazing feedback from the judges and received a score of 90 -
Thanks to all of our friends and family for all of their support helping us achieve all that we do!
