We enjoy the friendship and camaraderie which is usual within choirs such as ours, and we enjoy to sing and learn pop, modern, 60's/70's/80's, Movies, West End etc etc plus most other genres. Most of our members are non music readers but thoroughly enjoy rehearsals and learning the art of music, singing, putting harmonies together and being part of a great team. We have a great backroom team and committee who run the choir in the most professional way.

Rehearsals are held on Friday evenings 7.00 – 900 at a local church hall.
