A Brilliant Time in Bournemouth

European Barbershop Convention

We’re not being political when we say – we love Europe! After all, the chance to meet up and sing with fellow barbershoppers from all over the UK, Sweden, Finland, Ireland, Germany, Spain and Holland doesn’t come around that often.

We were delighted to be asked earlier this year to represent Sweet Adelines International at the European Barbershop Convention in Bournemouth. And what a wonderful experience it turned out to be. Congratulations to our sister organisation LABBS for an extremely well run convention.  We presume you laid on the beautiful weather as well.

We got to listen to some high level barbershop singing, heard some wonderful new songs, and admired some great costumes – even lederhosen! In between there was the chance for fish and chips, Cornish Pasties and whippy ice creams on the beach.

We send our congratulations to all the award winners. Surrey Harmony had a blast sharing the stage with you.
