The film is inspired by the true story, and collective memories, of Chivenor Military Ladies Choir (formerly the Military Wives Choir), Catterick WAGS Choir, and Plymouth Military Wives Choir. The Chivenor Military Ladies Choir will be performing before the start of the film.
History of the Chivenor Military Ladies Choir:
Formed by Gareth Malone at RMB Chivenor, as part of the television series ‘The Choir: Military Wives’. The aim was to help the wives and girlfriends of servicemen currently deployed in Afghanistan to express themselves through song.
Gareth led the Chivenor group to perform locally in the Pannier Market in Barnstaple and the series culminatedin a performance of ‘Wherever You Are’ at RBL's Festival of Remembrance at the Royal Albert Hall on 12 November 2011, in the presence of HM The Queen.
The choir have seen huge success and have a number of singles, albums and awards, most notably their No.1 single 'Wherever You Are'. and performing at Buckingham Palace for the Queens Diamond Jubilee.
The choir is now an independent charity and performs as the Chivenor Military Ladies Choir.
They are proud to have inspired, and co-founded, The Military Wives Choirs Foundation: helping create over 74 Military Wives Choirs on Bristish Military bases in the UK and Overseas
Chivenor Military Ladies Choir, now led by MD Rachel Smith, continue to provide support for fellow military wives and strive to raise awareness of military family life. Their true story has now inspired a film entitled Military Wives.
