Belfast Community Gospel Choir

As we strive to ensure the festival reaches the whole community, we are very proud to announce the appearance of the Belfast Community Gospel Choir this year, at Christ the King, Scroggy Road.  This initiative is supported by the local “Limavady Churches Together” organisation, and all are welcome !!

Also supporting BCGC will be the Long Tower Folk Group (more details soon), so come along and enjoy their combined energy on Sunday night !

Hailed as ‘the soul of Belfast’ the Belfast Community Gospel Choir (BCGC) has literally taken Northern Ireland by storm. They are relentless ambassadors for the city of Belfast and the whole of the province as they spread the message of love, joy and peace through their music.

BCGC performances are charged with passion and energy and the sheer JOY they exude from the stage is infectious. If you love foot-stomping, hand-clapping music, mixed together with well-known classic songs and a good helping of laughter, then BCGC certainly delivers! Led by their charismatic director and founder, Marie Lacey, the sound that the choir produces is nothing short of dynamic.

In 2009 Marie’s dream was to create a choir that, through unity and inclusiveness, would promote a positive image internationally of the ‘new’ Belfast and Northern Ireland. Her dream has certainly become a reality as the choir is an expression of the diversity of the city of Belfast with members from Kenya, Nigeria, South Africa and Spain.

The Choir’s resume is impressive including many TV Appearances, performances for Heads of State, Royalty, Corporate and Civic functions and Charity & Church concerts. Internationally they have performed in New York City and Boston.

Long Tower Folk Group are well known in the North West and will bring their unique style to a great evening’s show.
