A Handbag of Harmonies
A Handbag of Harmonies is a choir of vivacious women from Chester who create a party wherever they go. With pink feather boas and glitzy handbags, we sing in four-part harmony with dazzling choreography and guarantee to leave audiences with smiles on their faces. More info
You don't have to say you love me
We have missed singing in our city, so here's a little tribute set to a back-drop of Chester's eerily empty streets
We're still singing
We may not be allowed out, but we can still sing.

Where to see us
February Road Trip
Handbags travelled to Bury St Edmunds, where choir member the fabulous Keddy Sutton is starring in Shirley Valentine at the beautiful regency Theatre Royal – we were delighted to sing before and after this fantastic show. Big pic
We can offer performances from 20 minutes to a full evening, indoors or outdoors with as few as 20 and as many as 60 singers. We perform at openings, parties, fund-raisers, concerts, private and corporate events.
