Established 1921: ‘We are not a choir, as such, but an umbrella organisation that organises annual gatherings of seven constituent choirs in the Winchester Area, on two successive Saturdays in May to perform wonderful works from the choral repertoire ... The established pattern is for two annual Spring concerts in Winchester Cathedral and Romsey Abbey respectively, a series of combined choir rehearsals, an advance “taster day” on the selected repertoire and a choral workshop or “Come & Sing” in the Autumn. The Compton & Shawford Festival Choir is the only society still in existence which performed in the first Festival, although Easton & Martyr Worthy (now known as the Itchen Valley Choral Society) and Winchester City Festival Choir joined the following year, followed by Botley Choral Society in 1925’.
