I am very pleased to support the BFC in a small way, having had many enjoyable years singing in the Chorus, not quite from its inception but close, albeit usually in the back row. BFC has made a huge contribution to the live music world and long may it continue.

Derek Andrews-Smith, Friend (ex Bass 2)

As a patron of BFC I am lost in admiration of the hard work, dedication and professionalism of the Chorus.  Over the last 20 years I have attended several rehearsals and many  concerts and never fail to be blown away by the attention to detail, great discipline and fantastic sound.

Mrs Robin Adams

Having sung with the Chorus for over 20 memorable years from the very beginning I am pleased that the standard of singing and choice of music is still as excellent as ever. I love being a Friend! The social occasions are always so enjoyable and it is such a pleasure to meet up with old friends of over 50 years.
