Wynnum Fringe founder Tom Oliver is calling on Brisbane to create a world record

Calling on Brisbane to be part of a record-breaking community choir singing The Wynnum Takes It All!

 

(yes, you read that correctly!)

 

Hey Brisbane, want to make a little musical history? Founder of the WYNNUM FRINGE, Tom Oliver is calling on Brisbane to set the world record for the largest gathering of people singing The Wynnum Takes It All in Wynnum on Saturday November 18 at 10am.

 

This free event welcomes everyone, whether seasoned singer or a shower crooner. And it’s ABBA, so there’s that!

 

Tom is inviting everyone to gather in the beautiful Wynnum Fringe Garden, he’ll lead the Community Choir in a morning of joy, music, and unity! He has also written the lyrics (see below) and listen here

 

“This year Wynnum Fringe is bigger, there’s more performers plus we are calling on people from everywhere to join us on Saturday 18 at 10am and help us make history with the largest community choir. We are taking on ABBA's The Winner Takes It All - or is it The Wynnum Takes It All? We should check if Benny & Bjorn didn't accidentally misspell the lyrics when writing it!" said Tom.

 

“We do love a pun at the Fringe, last year it was You Can’t Wynnum All But You Can Wynnum Fringe, and this year we’ve been inspired by ABBA, and are proudly putting Wynnum on the map!”

THE WYNNUM TAKES IT ALL

VERSE 1

I don't wanna talk

About things we've gone through

Though it's hurting me

Now it's history

I've played all my cards

And that's what you've done too 

Nothing more to say

No more ace to play

 

CHORUS 1

The Wynnum Takes It All 

The loser standing small 

Beside the victory 

That's our destiny 

 

VERSE 2

The greatest town of all

On the fringe of Brisbane 

It's where we love to be 

Come and you will see 

The best community

Young, and old and in-between 

Sittin’ by the sea

It’s the place to be 

 

CHORUS 2

The Wynnum Takes it All 

The Bayside Festival 

There's so much to see 

Come join the party 

 

The Wynnum Takes It All 

The Bayside Festival 

There's so much to see 

Feel the energy! 

 

The Wynnum Takes It All!
