A Christmas Celebration

A big thank you to everyone who turned out to support the local community village Vocal Zones Choir at St Mary’s Church.

We were overwhelmed by the number of people in the church and the positive responses and compliments! It seems everyone had a good time and joined in with the singing, drinking then mulled wine and mince pies. The festive raffle also went well with some lucky winners amongst you!


Lots of favourite Christmas songs for you to enjoy

About Us

The aim of the choir is to bring together a group of like minded people who love to sing and make new friends along the way.  We all think that singing is such an uplifting experience and makes you feel good too.

Currently our members range from 16 years to 70+ although under 18s need to be accompanied by a responsible adult.

We look forward to seeing you soon.  You will be made very welcome!

Weekly Choir Sessions

The sessions are lead by Emma Bishton who is an enthusiastic and experienced musical director. Emma leads each session on a keyboard or piano whilst conducting the group……..a lady of many skills!

Each session starts with a warm up, then around an hours singing, followed by a break for tea, coffee and biscuits. We end the evening with song requests!
