Big Noise Chorus – Songs for the summer

Torbay Weekly

The Big Noise Chorus is performing this summer at Cockington on June 2 at 12.00 noon.  
It will be an outdoor concert that is free to the public, although there will be a bucket collection for their supported local charity, the Torbay Coast & Countryside Trust.
The performance will last approximately 40 minutes and will showcase both new material and a few old favourites. People attending are advised to bring their own chairs or picnic rugs as seating will not be provided.
Coiln Rea, the Director of the Big Noise Chorus, said: “We are delighted to be performing again after the very difficult times that we have all been through. We hope that everyone will enjoy the day both for the singing and for the wonderful surroundings that there are at Cockington. We look forward to a big crowd and a great day.”
The Big Noise Chorus also has exciting plans for later in the year and a 2022 of marvellous music for all to enjoy.  
Events Manager, Andrew Candy, said “We are thrilled to be taking our new show ‘Songs for the Planet’ to the Princess Theatre, Torquay on Saturday, October 15 and The Great Hall, Exeter on Saturday, October 22.  
“It will be a mixture of classic songs with an important environmental and conservation message and high-octane crowd pleasers. More details on this new show will be released soon, but it will be very exciting and there maybe a few surprises thrown in for good measure.”
The Big Noise Chorus (BNC) was established in 2010 and has grown to become a network of community choirs based in Exeter, Torquay and Ashburton.  
BNC members are trained to perform different musical genres including Pop, Soul, World, Motown and Rock music and have performed to a wide variety of concerts around Devon with other choirs and performing groups. There is no audition process, so anyone can apply to join, regardless of experience.
There is also a charitable arm to BNC and by February 2022, the Chorus had raised over £100,000 for charity. For more information, visit
