Downton Community Choir are busy rehearsing carols old and new, to sing around the village over the festive season. They will be at Christmas Tree festival on Saturday 10 December, at the village carol service on Sunday 11, and at the Good Companions Christmas party at the Memorial Hall on Tuesday 20 December. They will also be singing outside The Goat on Christmas Eve. So there are plenty of opportunities to catch up with this year's repertoire.
If any one in the village is organizing any fund raising events, and would like the choir to sing, do get in touch, as the opportunity to ‘step out and sing’ is always welcome.
The choir is happy to welcome new members - being a friendly group who just love to sing. It is a non–auditioned choir, with a wide range of musical ability, but a common love of having fun and expressing themselves through song. Rehearsals are from 7:30 - 9pm every Wednesday evening during term time, at The Sherwood Room, Downton Football Club on Wick lane.
