CORA ASTLE (pianoforte)
Inaugurated in 1907 with fifteen members, this male voice choir now has a membership of seventy. Most of them are miners, and although many suffer from unemployment and ' short time ', their love of singing stands out through it all. In the coal disputes of 1921 and 1926 the choir toured the Midlands, and by its concerts raised many hundreds of pounds for mi-iers' relief funds. It has won over fifty first prizes, and in November, 1927, secured the premier award at the London Eisteddfod. At Loughborough Festival it has won seven times in eleven contests.

The Programme arranged and produced by OWEN REED
Its associations with King John, its old-time greatness as a port, its picturesque houses and fine old church, make Lynn an interesting subject for the Microphone at Large series. The place has a flavour all its own, and this flavour Owen Reed will try and convey through the medium of sounds.
