About Us

CWAGMS was formed in 1977. In those days we numbered about 35 on stage, plus another 10-12 friends and relatives working backstage, front of house etc


Our first show, which we performed in our local village hall was a little known musical/operetta called 'Dick Turpin'


Our membership is now in the region of about 100 people!


We perform two stage musicals each year, in may and december. We also have an annual travelling variety musical show which begins in September and is performed throughout the year.


We raise money for charities by performing our annual concerts 'A Village Christmas' and 'Music in the Park' at Beaudesert Scout and Guide Camp.


Charities that benefit from us are the Midlands Air Ambulance, Child Victims of Crime, RNLI (Royal National Lifeboat Institute), St.John Ambulance, The Scout and Guide Movement and St.Giles Hospice. We also raise money for Churches, Halls and many other worthwhile causes.


CWAGMS organises an annual weekend away to a seaside town. We perform one concert which entertains local residents and holiday makers helping to support our charities even more! We have been to Morcambe, Gt.Yarmouth, Llandudno, Minehead, Weston-Super-Mare and Lytham St Annes. If you would like us to visit you then please contact us!


CWAGMS also go singing every Christmas. All of the money we raise is given to our Charities. We all dress up in Dickensian costumes and look like we've all just stepped off a Christmas Card. If you would like us to sing for you then please contact us.
