with all the best intentions in the world, and after a few issues with support from venues and a general exasperation at the apathy of audiences to what we are trying to do, we said we were having a break, doing less, maybe even dare I say it, quitting? And we did, for about 3 weeks over Christmas. But we are back….
It’s fair to say that it has been a tough year for us at Songs of Praise. Therefore, some hard decisions have been made and we are radically changing our approach in 2017.
