On Saturday 4th July 2015, we made our debut. We sang at The Big O Festival in Orpington in Kent. The audience enjoyed our singing Imagine; Kiss Me, Honey Honey, Kiss Me; and Lassie. Our performers on the day were Maura, Anne, Mollie and Tom, combined age over 300 years old! After the performance we posed for photos by the cars and motorbikes, and they were vintage too.
