Our 55th Year !!!
You can find references to a choral group in Hailsham from the early 1930s, but it faded from view during the war - they probably had even more troubles recruiting tenors and basses then! The present Society was founded in 1961, so we are now in our 55th year and still going from strength to strength.
Free singing workshop: Saturday 17th September 2016
Let’s get Hailsham singing!
This year, as part of the Hailsham Festival, we are holding a free singing workshop on Saturday 17th September 2016. It will be a come-and-sing event open to everyone aged 14 and over. No previous experience necessary.
Come and join the choir for the morning and enjoy making music together.
Our next concert
Our next concert includes Vaughan Williams’ Five Mystical Songs - a beautiful and sensitive setting of George Herbert’s deeply felt poems - as well as sacred choral works by Bruckner, Mozart, Monteverdi, Palestrina and more.

We are a choir of about 65 singers based in Hailsham, East Sussex.
We perform at least four main concerts during the year, with programmes featuring anything from Bach (Christmas Oratorio, St. John Passion) to Beatles, Rossini (Petite Messe Solennelle) to Gershwin, Rutter (Requiem, Magnificat, carols) to Rogers and Hart.
We’re a sociable lot too, music workshops, coffee mornings, quizzes, even the odd pint of beer or glass of wine (or two)!
If you’re looking for a fast way to increase your circle of friends, as well as an opportunity to sing hugely enjoyable music go to the ‘Join Us’ page.
