'Founded in 1933, although records of a Choral Society can be traced to the middle of the 19th Century. During World War II the Society was suspended although Jackie Burn kept a choir going in Alnmouth until the Choral Society was restarted in 1947. Since then, regular concerts have been performed in local Churches, halls and the Playhouse, as well as more informal events in places such as Cragside, Hulne Park and Brinkburn Priory.'

 

'We are an award-winning musical theatre company ... performing excellent quality Broadway and West End shows year after year!'

 

'We are a group of around 25 enthusiastic singers who meet each week to rehearse in the small Northumbrian town of Rothbury ... We are an amateur choir who enjoy the challenge of singing classical music, usually unaccompanied, both sacred and non-sacred, from Renaissance to contemporary, and sometimes we perform with organ. Our repertoire includes arrangements of folk and popular music.'
