May 4th, the public gallery was standing room only as the public awaited the trial of the year.
The jury filed in, the drunken judge (literally) fell into the room and stumbled to his seat much to the annoyance of the usher desperately trying to keep order.
Once there was silence in court, the defendant emerged to plead his case.
Ugie Voices’ first spring concert saw Peterhead Sheriff Court transformed into a Gilbert and Sullivan Operetta, this sell out performance in memory of our late chairperson Marion Macfarlane was a showcase of popular songs, show tunes and classics.

Come along and support your local singing group!
Wow! What a talented bunch of members we have. Not only singers but many great cooks too as was demonstrated at our Pot Luck Supper Social evening on Tuesday night.
A veritable feast for all and a rare chance to sit and chat without upsetting our Musical Director!
Special thanks to Heather for keeping us all right in abiding by the hall rules and regulations.
Our members were saddened by the death of our longstanding member Marion Macfarlane in February.
Marion served as our President and Vice President under our former banner of “Peterhead Choral Society” from 2009 to 2016, her enthusiasm and organising skills keeping us all on our toes. Marion was a keen supporter of the transition of Peterhead Choral Society to “Ugie Voices” and it is regrettable that she will not share our new direction with us.
A stalwart of the soprano section, Marion loved singing and her cheery smile and ready wit will be missed by all.
We are currently rehearsing for our spring concert in early May, no spoilers but you can look forward to a varied evening of music from Gilbert & Sullivan, Queen and more! Come back for a behind the scenes peek at our rehearsal...
