Anvil Chorus is the performing chorus for the West Midlands Barbershop Harmony Club - a chorus of approximately 35 males from all age groups.
We do not have an upper or lower age limit but members under 18 years of age have to be supervised and must have an approved supervisor (or guardian) present who must have DBS (formerly CRB) approval.
We are West Midlands based, but will perform outside of that area if required.
We're not a theatrical, theological or thespian organisation; we sing unaccompanied four-part close-harmony (a capella) in traditional barbershop style.
Being one of Birmingham’s best attractions, The Birmingham Botanical Gardens offers something for everyone, be it one of our four stunning glasshouses showing tropical rainforest to arid desert, beautiful gardens, playground, tearoom or our gift shop.
The Main Lawn is an amphitheatre, with its axis running roughly south-west from the Terrace to the Bandstand. This acts as a sun trap and the higher ground behind cuts off the cold northerly winds, so the Lawn is a popular spot for sunbathing and picnics in fine weather. The grass gets favoured treatment to keep the turf in the fine springy condition which makes it such a pleasure to walk on and a joy to behold from the Terrace.
The Bandstand is surrounded by colourful summer and winter bedding displays, in keeping with the period of its creation. On the far side of the Bandstand is the fountain, and the planting areas around the fountain have been enriched with shrubs for all seasons, including Peonies, Abelias, Camellias and Hydrangeas.
