‘He who sings scares away his woes!’


Those of us who’ve been with the choir for a while already know how beneficial singing is for us and hopefully our new members are starting to feel it too.  Singing’s not just the best fun you can have with your clothes on, it’s also scientifically proven to do us loads of good stuff too.

Here’s a few fun (but true) reasons why you need to start singing every minute of every day!  Enjoy – and have a great weekend

We love Gareth!


This week we’ve been enjoying Gareth Malone’s latest singing exploits with “The Naked Choir” on the BBC

We love singing a few a cappella songs as part of our set, especially when we get to sing in amazing spaces such as All Saints Church.  We’ll be there for our end of term gig on Saturday 12th December… so come on down!
If you missed “The Naked Choir”  you can check it out here..
Here’s what the Guardian has to say about it – NB spoiler alert, don’t read if you’re going to watch the show!

Summer gigs


We can now confirm we have two amazing places for our end of term charity concerts!

Tickets will be on sale next week.

This is a chance for the choirs to show off all of the hard work they have put in over the term. They sing their socks off with a superb set of pop, soul and gospel classics to raise funds and awareness for local charities.

The Hassocks choir will be singing in the beautiful Holy Trinity church in Hurstpierpoint on Sunday 12th July. Doors open at 6pm and show starts at 6.30pm:

The Brighton choir will be singing in the wonderful Old Market in Hove on Saturday 11th July. Doors open 7pm and show starts at 7.30pm.


Happy 2015 everyone


We couldn’t have asked for a better end to 2014 than our amazing Christmas concert, well done everyone!

Here’s wishing everybody a great start to the new year. We will be back after a little break for more wonderful singing fun :)

Here are the dates for next term for our two fantastic choirs. If you’d like to sign up for a free taster session then please just pop us a quick email letting us know which choir you’d like to join:
