The Choir is informal, we take our singing seriously, but meetings are fun. We currently have 22 members and a regular attendance of around seventeen (including one man). New members are welcome, experience is not required and we don’t hold auditions of any kind. We perform for the U3A at Christmastime, and are happy to accept occasional invitations to perform for other organizations.

Choir singing at Newstead Abbey

Two-hourly meetings are held twice-monthly at Sherwood House, Linby, on the first and third Wednesdays of each month, at 1.20p.m. and 11.20a.m. respectively, it is a comfortable venue, with free parking available, ‘buses are handy and conveniently timed. From September 2019, members will pay £5 subs into a ‘kitty’ which, with current membership, should cover approximately the following four meetings, including absences, they also pay for their music, bought at a reduced rate through the choir, and theirs to keep.

On joining, new members may opt to pay £5, or the current £2 per meeting until the next subs are due. We receive additional instructions for our music at every meeting, so a commitment to both monthly meetings is required, for members’ own benefit and in consideration of fellow members.
