The last Thursday of every month 11am – 1pm

Everyone is welcome at our Goldies Cymru sessions, putting smiles on hundreds of faces through daytime singing and activity.

Goldies is not a choir, but we do use the popular hits of the ’50s onwards at our sessions to get people singing out and (quite often!) getting up to dance.
