Director of Music 
Lucas Bailey 
 
Lucas joined the choir as our accompanist in 2013 and, after a short break, returned as our Musical Director in 2016.  
 
Over the course of his musical studies he accompanied various choirs and theatre groups, and then became a restaurant pianist for Egypt Mill Hotel and Restaurant in Nailsworth, The Queen’s Hotel in Cheltenham, and at Highgrove House in Tetbury. 
Lucas is now working extensively as a music and theatre practitioner at the Everyman Theatre in Cheltenham, and also teaches children and young adults at various schools, colleges and performing arts academies across the region, as well as heading up his own gospel choir in Cheltenham which he founded in 2015. 
 
The many musical arrangements he has created for the choir over the years are really beautiful to listen to, and often extremely challenging to sing… but we wouldn’t have it any other way! 
 
Lucas has been and continues to be a huge inspiration to the choir, and we're honoured and extremely fortunate to have him as our Musical Director. 
Accompanist 
Diane Martin, ALCM 
 
Diane started playing the piano at the age of 7, working her way through the Royal College of Music Examinations Grades 1 to 8.  
 
She then went on to gain a Music Diploma and became an Associate of the London College of Music. 
Life as an accompanist began at the age of 16 when she joined the Springfield Singers, a ladies choir based in the Forest of Dean. Diane was accompanist for this choir for 10 years, during which time she played for them in concerts at many venues, and in music competitions in Cheltenham, Hereford and Bath, where they won many prizes. 
 
Diane joined the Gloucestershire Police Male Voice Choir in 2002 after hearing us sing at a local charity concert. She thoroughly enjoys being part of the choir, inspiring us with her humour, enthusiasm, encouragement and style of playing.  
 
She lives in Gloucester with her son Alastair and, in addition to music, enjoys swimming, holidays and being out and about.
