From Buxton to Las Vegas


Award-winning Derbyshire women’s chorus DaleDiva will be performing at Buxton Festival Fringe for the first time this year as part of its lead up to the World Championships.

The group will be performing ‘Feelin’ Good with DaleDiva’ at St John’s Church, Buxton on Saturday 25 July ahead of its preparations for international competition in Las Vegas.

The Divas won gold in national competition last year which has earned them the opportunity to represent their county and their country in the USA in October.

DaleDiva musical director Ally Law said: “We’re thrilled to be performing as part of Buxton Festival Fringe this year – it’s a fantastic opportunity to be involved in such a popular and well-loved local arts event.

“We’re working hard in the lead up to the World Championships so we’ll have an extra edge to our performance as well as some new material to show off.

“We haven’t performed in Buxton before so will be great to welcome a new audience to see us perform as well as see some of our loyal fans.” 

DaleDiva sings a variety of acapella pop, show tune and barbershop arrangements and has more than 65 members aged 24 to 72 from Matlock, Wirksworth, Cromford, Belper, Derby and surrounding areas.

Since the chorus was formed seven years ago it has taken numerous medals on the national competition stage, performed as part of the BBC’s Last Choir Standing show and annual ‘Children in Need’ appeal and was invited to take part in Radio 3’s ‘Choir of the Year’ competition. 

The Divas also won the final of Channel 5’s ‘Don’t Stop Believing’ search to find Britain’s best show choir and has now set its sights on ‘Going for Gold’ singing against some of the best choruses in the world on the famous MGM Grand stage at the World Championships in October.

DaleDiva will be performing at Buxton Festival Fringe at St John’s Church, St John’s Road, Buxton, SK17 6XQ on Saturday 25 July from 7pm to 9pm. 

Tickets are £10 (children and concessions £7) and now on sale from
