Hi all,

We wanted to take this week to let you know of upcoming events and, of course, our end of term gig!  We have the pleasure of performing on a few occasions throughout the next couple of months, so come and see us at all the locations below!

17th June – London to Brighton Bike Ride – Main Stage

14th July – Patchfest – Main Stage

15th July – The Old Market, Brighton – Our summer gig – afternoon show 5.30pm and evening show 8pm

We also have the wonderful Mara Simpson supporting us at our summer gig.

At every gig we support local charities that are doing a fantastic job throughout the city and this term it is the Brighton and Hove Food Partnership, a non-profit organisation, they do various projects throughout the city including dementia gardening, social isolation, cookery courses, food banks and the City’s Community Kitchen, a very worthy charity.  At our gig there will be bucket shaking for you to donate whatever you can, thank you!

We can’t wait to sing for you!



A few important things about singing.


I think it is always good to take stock of how good it is to freely sing away till our hearts are content, nothing better!!  However, being part of a choir is not just singing on our own but rather singing collectively with other people and in our case it’s 150 strong; and so there are a few things that are important when it comes to singing in general but more importantly within a choir.

The link below highlights a few important points for us all to ponder over.

We have just passed week 6 and sounding incredible, gearing up for our summer gig and a few other things in the pipeline.  Keep an eye out for announcements in the coming weeks.

We are also pleased to announce that the wonderful Mara Simpson will be supporting us at our summer gig, how exciting!  Tickets will be on sale on 5th June!


Rock ‘n’ Roll!


Well our last Choir Extra gig proved to be as brilliant as we thought it would be!  Reef were fantastic and we loved every minute of performing with them, I think we’re all still on a high from it!

Although there was only a small number of us due to venue logistics, we missed the 150 voice sound wall, we still packed a punch and we can’t wait for the next Choir Extra adventure!

A massive thank you to the brilliant Reef for inviting us to perform together!!

Keep and eye and an ear out for upcoming announcements of where we will be performing and how to get tickets!

Rehearsals for our Summer Gig are coming along great, we’re sounding so great and stronger than ever and we can’t wait to perform again at The Old Market!

Reef Extra!


The summer term’s new songs are taking shape beautifully with a stunning arrangement from an old classic that is sounding incredible; it’s going to sound amazing at the gig!  As will all the other songs that we have in store.  We will give some clues in the coming months as to what to expect!

Aside form our main choir we also have Choir Extra where we rub shoulders and sing along side other wonderful singers.  With this Choir Extra escapade we are singing along side the rock-tastic Reef on their sell out gig on Friday 11th May at the Concorde 2 – we simply cannot wait !

Put your hands on, put your hands on, put your hands on, put your…………

Extra Extra, read all about it!


Last Monday we had the greatest honour of singing, not only at the Komedia in Brighton but alongside the wonderfully talented Mara Simspon and her band. The place was packed out and we all sung our hearts out together. It was a very special Night! Mara had the experience recorded and so we will share the footage when we get it.

There is more Choir Extra coming up so keep your eyes peeled for announcements soon!

We’re going into week three of the new summer term of both the regular choir and the brand new afternoon choir.  Both are shaping up to be amazing!

The sun is starting to shine, there’s leaves on the trees and we’re back doing what we love the most- singing; our summer concerts are going to be great!

We’re Back!


Last week saw the return of the choir after our Easter break, all fresh and wide eyed; ready for the new term!

Last week  also saw the start of our new Wednesday afternoon Choir in Hanover.  It was great to see so many people turn up and enjoy singing together for the first time!   There are still a few spaces left and so sign up here!

Lots of exciting things ahead, great summer songs, the new afternoon Choir and a few Choir Extra surprises coming up, we will keep you posted!!

In the meantime, last terms Choir Extra culminates this Monday, 30th April at the Komedia in Brighton where we will be supporting and singing alongside the super talented Mara Simpson and her full band on her first leg of her British tour!

There are a limited amount of tickets left and so click the link below to get some tickets!

It’s showtime!


So after many weeks of pain, sweat and tear(drop), we have finally arrived at our Gigs this Sunday at 5pm and later at 7.30pm.

We will be filling the nave and isles of St Martin’s Church, Brighton with songs from Massive Attack, Coldplay, Imagine dragons, Reef, Bob Marley, Bill Withers and McFadden & Whitehead.

It’s going to be a choral extravaganza that we all hope you will come and enjoy with us.

Our Evening gig is now sold out but we still have some tickets left for the 5pm show and so if you want tickets contact us through Facebook on this link!
