Thurrock Golden Voices Commissioned by BBC One Show
OVER 50s choir, Thurrock Golden Voices, were approached by the BBC One Show this week to be filmed at Lakeside singing Christmas songs and Carols.
Barbara Martindale, Golden Voices Booking Secretary, said, “When the BBC called on Tuesday I thought it was a hoax or one of my friends messing about! Then I realised the call was serious when James Galbraith, the BBC Director, said he’d found my contact details on the Thurrock Golden Voices website and they wanted a choir the next day as they were filming a piece at Lakeside so I got in touch with everyone and 12 of us were free to attend.”
Karen Glazzard, Chair of Thurrock Golden Voices, said, “It was great fun, the One Show presenter, Joe Crowley, dressed up as Father Christmas and the rest of the BBC staff were lovely.”
