    MKCDC at Bradwell Abbey / Angels at the Abbey

    YOU’RE NOT ALONE

    MKCDC’s latest community project will see us harness the haunting power of the beautiful song - You’re not alone - by Cathal Smyth (also known as Chas Smash from Madness). We hope to unite families and friends in the UK and abroad who have been kept apart by Covid-19, and who are feeling the pinch of isolation in the current financial crisis. We’ll be working with a diverse range of organisations and schools, bringing together voices from across the community in a massed choir. This will culminate in the live-streamed performance of the song within the grounds of Bradwell Abbey at our annual Angels at the Abbey event with a live youth string orchestra.
