At last! Our 2 year long wait to sing at wonderful Haddon Hall is coming to fruition !

From the original booking some two years ago, Ocho are delighted to have been asked to sing at Haddon Hall, Bakewell, Derbyshire, DE45 1LA on 7th and 14th August this summer.

The Hall and gardens themselves are quite magnificent and we are really excited to be singing two 45 minute sessions at 12.00 and 2.00pm in The Long Gallery on those dates.

With nine hundred years of history, Haddon Hall is one of the oldest houses in the country and is the home of Lord and Lady Edward Manners. Moreover it is one of the only houses in England to have remained in one family’s ownership for its entire existence. So what a wonderful Summer's day could be had visiting the house, restaurant, gardens and mediaeval park ...... oh, and listen to a bit of Ocho too !!!!

So things are really getting busy for Ocho for this year, which is fabulous considering the trauma of the last two years. Don't forget our May concerts at Horninglow and Hinckley on 13th and 14th May respectively ......... we then have our Semi Final of Midlands Choir of the Year on 22nd May followed by our sings at Haddon Hall. Very excited for 2022 !
