Booking the Choir

See the Section BOOK THE CHOIR on the website Homepage. It contains an online ENQUIRY FORM which should be fully completed with details of your event. Our Choir Secretary will respond to you within a couple of days.

The standard Fee will be notified to you personally on request. For weddings, there is a non-returnable deposit of £100.00
- Does the Booking cost include travelling expenses?
Travelling expenses may be additionally incurred if the distance to your event is outside our catchment area. You will be notified accordingly.
- Can I book a smaller number of the choir to attend an event?
Unfortunately not. We only take bookings for the choir as a whole to attend any event.
- Do you organise Charity Concerts?
If you are a Charity you’ll have to do this yourself, but we will give you support. You have to arrange a suitable venue, ideally with a tuned piano.
- How do I book tickets for Choir Concerts?
Tickets are available from choir members or from designated outlets named on Concert Blogs and posters.

Tuesdays 7:30pm to 9:30pm at Eirianfa Community Centre, Denbigh, if no concert engagement. There is usually a break for Christmas.

Our music director, Sam Pritchard, will listen to you singing informally, but only to place you in the appropriate section of the choir.
- Does the choir compete in competitions?
We do not consider ourselves a competitive choir. We are a community choir and enjoy performing for charitable organisations and other concerts.
- Are members expected to attend every concert?
It is always pleasing to have a good ‘turnout’ but there are always reasons why attendances are varied.

No previous experience is required.
