Festival Choir

The St Mary's Festival Choir normally sings at special services throughout the year, such as at Easter, Christmas, Harvest Festival, Remembrance Sunday and Remembering Together. It also regularly sings at a Choral Evensong on the fourth Sunday of each month.

The choir is usually available to sing at weddings, when it will sing the hymns in support of the congregation, and will, at no extra cost, perform an anthem during the signing of the register, if required. Please discuss requirements for the choir with the Parish Secretary in the first instance.

New members to the choir are always welcome. Choir rehearsals are usually on a Friday evening from 6.00pm to 7.00pm, in church - but see below
