“After 3 years in Evo it never ceases to amaze me how much love and energy you give to us all. You’re like a positivity drug that’s definitely addictive. I love singing with Evo although I can’t always make it, I’m always made to feel like one of the family. Here’s to new and exciting adventures in 2019!”
“I joined Evo almost 3 and a half years ago non confident and going through a rough patch in my life. Joining Evo helped me find myself, I never quite knew ‘who’ I was I knew the one thing that made me happy was to sing. In Joining Evo I ‘found’ myself. Thank you lilli and all of the Evo massive! You’ve played a huge part in helping me be who I am today.
Lots of love

“Lilli-Thank you for the warm welcome I’ve received since joining Evo in September. I have been trying to pluck up the courage to join another choir for over a year before joining Evo, but didn’t quite have the confidence. I love coming on Wednesdays. It doesn’t matter how crappy my day has been or what else I’m juggling in life, singing with Evo makes all my stresses and worries just melt away. Evo is better than therapy! I’ve loved all the Christmas performances and never in a million years thought I’d be brave enough to perform in Salisbury Cathedral. You’ve got this amazing ability to make people around you light up and be the best they can be. It’s lovely to see. You also have my upmost respect for your amazing ability to juggle all that you do-being a great mum to your three little ones, running a home, a thriving business and running a very busy (and increasingly popular, may I add) choir. You should be incredibly proud of yourself and know that you inspire a great many of us. Really excited about what 2019 with Evo will bring! Have a great night Saturday, sorry I can’t be there. Much Love Sarah xxx”
“When I first met you & Kev back in 2001 when you both joined En Masse, singing with me, Bev, Babs & many more, we all experienced many fantastic gigs at some amazing venues. Some great memories were made over those years, but little did I know that we were to meet up again in the future & make new, wonderful memories ! Upon discovering that Evolution existed, I made a point of coming to watch & it reignited the adrenaline rush & excitement from our previous years. I’m so pleased that I joined, I’ve had the best time & made so many lovely friends over the years I’ve been coming. The family feel of the group, where everyone has got each others backs & give one another a tremendous amount of love & support, is brilliant & it’s all down to you ! You have given & done so much for so many over the years & we can’t thank you enough, along with Kev, you both make a great team. It’s also been a joy to watch you beautiful family grow before our eyes & join us on many occasions. You often work yourself to a frazzle, I really don’t know how you manage to do so much, but we are eternally grateful. Thank you Liz, love you lots ️”
“Thank you for allowing each of us to get out of Evo what we need (joy, fun, confidence, friendship, love…a(nother) family, etc) You are a great teacher, an amazing mother & wife, a great role model (super woman!) and a truly wonderful friend to me (and to so many people!). Thank you x
PS: I hope for many more shared car journeys with you and Kevin in 2019 ;-)”
“When I stumbled across some people singing in Tescos almost 2 years ago I had no idea that it would turn out to be this fabulous group of people that have become my second family. That has been created by you & whether you agree or not, the heart & soul of that family is you. You have not only allowed me to find my singing voice & my confidence but also encouraged, supported & guided me both personally and in creating my own business. I am proud to call you my friend. As the saying goes…team work makes the dream work…cheesy or not, I’m definitely on the right team and I can’t wait for an epic 2019 to begin. Loadsa love, Ems xxxx”
“As you know I am not very good with words (remembering them or writing them) but I would just like to say a huge thank you for all you do. Lots of love. X”
“Thanks Lilli for being there when I needed someone to talk to and re-igniting my love of singing. Looking forward to more adventures in 2019! Kathy x”
“I was never to know or appreciate initially what a few singing lessons with you would bring to my life. I never thought I could sing and especially in front of people and look what’s happened. I’m singing, I’ve made wonderful friendships and have found a group of people that it turns out I can’t be without. You are the true soul of that and without you it wouldn’t be Evo. I hope with your guidance to do you proud again in 2019. Here’s to Evo world domination. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. Abbie. Xx”
“Dear Lilli, you are a star. You have given me so much confidence and belief in myself, more than I thought possible. What a gift you have. Much love to you as always.️️ Babs XX”
“Thank you for always being the brightest shinning star in an otherwise dull sky. You give hope and inspiration to so many people, and I am so proud to call you my friend, Thank you and Evo for your support while Steve was not well. Here’s hoping 2019 sees as much love and fun as last year, all my love for a truly wonderful lady”
“Thank you Lilli for everything that you do and the amazing opportunities you have given us. I joined Evo, as I figured if I could sing in front of people nothing else in life would seem so scary and with your support and friendship that is absolutely true. I didn’t however expect all of the other benefits like friendship, love, letting go of stuff i can’t change and most importantly finding my voice (not just my singing voice).”
“I’ve stalked you, Kev and all of Evo for many years and this year (2018) I finally reached out and said – Let Me In! And you did, without hesitation. Eight months on I have smiled, admired, sang, cried, danced and sweated but above all I have found new friendships, been reminded of the kindness in people and found you! You see me and all the things I can be when I struggle too and we share a filthy mind and vocab that has me giggling into the early hours. I ruddy love you Elizabeth (weird) and your Boys and Sophia who have brought light back into my life, so I’m afraid you are going to have to break the news to Kev that the lot of you are stuck with me -Uncle Bob, for life.
Heres to 2019 and living our best lives!”
“What an amazing 1st year of Evo it has been! I’m so glad I ventured out back in January and chose to do something for me! With your wonderful encouragement and the ongoing support from the group as a whole I feel like I really do belong and look forward to continuing in 2019 with Baby Roe No.2 in tow!
Thank you for always managing to find time for everyone inside and outside of Evo!
Your energy and love is always top notch!
Lots of love – Zoe xXxXx”
“Thanks for a great Evo year. Wednesday evenings are now an event. You have managed to bring together a great group of people and your talent and enthusiasm always shines through.
Love Jac x”
“Thank you so much for welcoming me into the crazy and epic world of Evo!
It’s only been a couple of months since I joined but they have been life changing for me. You have given me some of my identity back and helped me regain some confidence, and I know that by working alongside you and the rest of the Evo family that my confidence will keep growing.
I can’t wait for all the excitement 2019 will bring!
Lots of love, Sam ”
“Thank you Lilli for another fab year. Another year of being wacky and wonderful. Evo has been crucial for giving me back my self confidence and self love, and providing a belonging when I needed it. Here’s to another year of entertaining ourselves, sometimes just with an audience present. Your spirit sibling, Craig. Xx”
“Wow!! 4 years since I watched you all nearly break that bandstand at the Christmas market and knew in that moment that I had found what I was looking for. I have gone from not being able to even sing in front of Tim to singing in front of a full Salisbury Cathedral!
Lilli you are the Heart and Soul of Evolution and somehow seem to draw those together who all need something in their lives that helps make them feel whole. I can’t imagine my life without the happiness that all the people in Evo bring. You should be soo proud of all that you have achieved and I know that 2019 is going to be our most Epic yet!!
“Well where do I start?! Evo is such a massive part of my life and the last 5 years have been the absolute BEST! Lill your passion and enthusiasm is infectious, and as soon as rehearsals start everyone instantly feels lifted and loved! thank you soo much for everything you do for us, and thank you for believing in me when I don’t even believe in myself! I LOVE YOU lots Becky Boo! ”
“A massive thank you for everything you have done for me this year ! Not only have you brought back my confidence but also many friendships too. I had wanted to join evo a long time ago and when I finally became a member of the group I was ecstatic . All the amazing things you do for each individual and the group as a whole is amazing and I do wonder how you get the time to rest !!!! Your positivity and determination is outstanding and it’s definitely rubbed off on everyone! Love from Kaitlyn:)”
“Thank you so much for inviting me to Evo this year, I am so glad I joined because what it has bought to my life is unbelievable. With out you and evo I wouldn’t have been able to have made so many lovely friends, improve my singing and confidence, and be able to bond more with my sister as we now have so much more in common. I am so grateful so to you I am thankful. Here’s to many more amazing memories and a very busy new year!
Lots of Love Amy ”
“Thank you Lilli Badcock for your kindness over the last few months and welcoming me into the Evolution family.
EVOLUTION came into my life at the right time and I feel like I’ve found the piece of puzzle to bring me fulfillment in my life.
Here’s to more fun in 2019.
Simon Millard xxx”
“Hey Lilli! Thanks for all the support you’ve given me over the last 18 months, it’s been an epic ride, and thanks to Evolution, my stage fright is almost non existent and I have my confidence back! Loads of love, Shelley.x”
“Being relatively new to Salisbury, I joined Evo to meet new people and have a space for myself once a week to enjoy doing something just for me. Already I have taken part in a performance night with the group and although nervous felt totally at home with everyone. The genuine camaraderie that comes from this group is inspiring and keeps you coming back for more.”
“My passion had always been singing and I had done the odd bit with my voice but I would always stand on stage dead still and just sing with not a lot of stage presence. Now I can happily stand on stage and sing from the heart.”
“For me, being part of this supportive, caring, non-judgemental singing group, has alleviated so many of my fears about singing in front of others. Yes, I still get nervous, but I am becoming brave enough to try out for small solo parts. This would never have happened without the support of these gorgeous people.”
