The Newcastle Peoples Chorus (NPC) celebrated their thirtieth anniversary this year with a gathering of like-minded choirs for an afternoon workshop followed by dinner and a concert at the Sydney Junction Hotel, Beaumont Street, across the road from the Hamilton Railway Station.
A few of us attended and joined in the STUC bracket:
- Let There Be Peace
- Railway Refreshment Rooms
- You Gotta Go Down And Join The Union
A combined choir of all choirs present sang:
- What’s That I Hear
- Power in a Union
- Stand Together
- Four Strong Women
- Way Old Friends Do
- Solidarity Forever
There was a breakfast at 10am the next morning for those still in Newcastle, at the Honeysuckle Pub on the harbour.
