Charity Screening of Military Wives PLUS Live On Stage: Culdrose Military Wives Choir
Inspired by the global phenomenon of military wives choirs, the story celebrates a band of misfit women who form a choir on a military base. As unexpected bonds of friendship flourish, music and laughter transform their lives, helping each other to overcome their fears for loved ones in combat.
The inspirational story of friendship, love, and support on the home front. A group of women come together as their partners serve in Afghanistan. Together they form the very first military wives choir, helping each other through some of life’s most difficult moments and also becoming a media sensation and global movement in the process.
Peter Cattaneo (The Full Monty) directs Oscar-Nominee and BAFTA-Winner Kristin Scott Thomas (Darkest Hour) and BAFTA Nominee Sharon Horgan (Catastrophe) in this feel-good crowd-pleaser.
Culdrose Military Wives Choir:
Inspired by Gareth Malone’s TV series ‘The Choir’, Culdrose Military Wives Choir formed in 2012 and is Cornwall’s only branch in the international network of 75 choirs, comprising more than 2300 members in British military bases across the UK and overseas.
The Helston-based choir includes wives and partners of serving personnel based at RNAS Culdrose and some that are ship-based out of Plymouth and Portsmouth. Culdrose MWC also boasts members that are themselves in service or have previously served, along with veterans’ spouses and civilians working in the military community.
The Military Wives Choirs is a charity that brings all women in the military community closer together and empowers them through singing.
