A festival inspired by a hospital choir took place at NGH today.

The choir of staff was formed in June with a view to engendering camaraderie and performed at the hospital’s annual general meeting.

But the choir was doing so well that managers decided to form a festival around them.

Sally-Ann Watts, head of communications and the group’s organiser, said: “I was actually in tears because I could see how much joy they were getting out of it and how much others were getting from them.

“They had performed so well at the AGM that they had a standing ovation. Later in the marquee during the festival they were just oustanding, I can’t praise them enough.”

The festival featured tours of an operating theatre, pharmacy, pathology and even a boiler room.

As well as the the first public performance from the NGH Choir there were also Bhangra Dancers, Dhol Drummers, salsa dancers and a jazz band.
