‘A non-competitive choral festival. All choirs of every level of experience are welcome, in the spirit of the Scandinavian Sangerstevne. There are four concerts during the day of the main festival, with 6 choirs performing in each concert. Each choir performs a short set of songs, and forms the audience for the other choirs in their concert. At the end of the concert, all the choirs join together to perform two simple songs that have been sent to them in advance.’ Held Early March.

Formed in 1910, the Society has, with occasional interruptions such as wartime, presented productions every year. Since the late 1980s their number has increased from one to two - and even three - per year. Our early years covered mostly G&S but even by the late 1920s the repertoire was being extended. In recent years we have covered a very wide variety of music, featuring Cole Porter, Irving Berlin and Ivor Novello and others, together with critically acclaimed performances of Fiddler on the Roof, Me and My Girl, Cowardy Custard and Oklahoma!’
