The Royal Hotel – music and arts venue of 2004 Ashby Arts Festival

The high vaulted ceiling of the Royal Hotel helped to create a stunning sound which allowed the choir to perform its  songs to great advantage leading to a general consensus that this was the best performance yet.

Performing two sets either side of the prize giving there was a grand sense of occasion to the the event with each set being introduced by the town crier in full regalia!
