CHARITY BASED 'NOT-FOR-PROFIT' CHOIR
Our community choir started in 2007 - we are a large not-for-profit choir, our members comprise all ages and abilities who love to sing and at the same time raise money for local & national charities. Our fees are £27 a term, [£2.25 per 2 hour rehearsal]. For a free taster session contact Sue on 01825 890464. Rehearsals are 7.15-9.30 Mondays at The Belmont Centre [next to Holy Cross Church]. We sing everything from Les Miserables to Abba, Elton John to Rogers & Hammerstein and everything inbetween. Our rehearsals are fun in a relaxed friendly atmosphere. We hold lots of concerts, events and workshops.
'THE UCKFIELD SINGERS GO TRAVELLING
The Uckfield Singers travelled to Eltham in South-East London on
Saturday 8th July to take part in a very successful concert hosted by
their old friends, the Greenwich Community Choir. Their programme,
which included songs by Queen, Richard Rodgers and Paul Simon was very well received by an appreciative audience.
Why the connection with Greenwich? Two of the Uckfield Singers used to
sing with the Greenwich Community Choir and have maintained links with
them – in fact this is the second concert held in Eltham. The Uckfield
Singers look forward to a return visit planned for 2018 when the
Greenwich Community Choir will visit Uckfield. Keep a look-out for
We recently celebrated our 10th birthday with a party, attended by 90 choir members, partners, guests and friends. We enjoyed a wonderful hot supper provided by one of our choir members, Erika, who runs her own catering company “Moveable Feasts”, danced all evening to Groove 101, a 6-piece band from Tunbridge Wells, held our own “Ucksters” Awards Ceremony (with only minor envelope confusion, quickly rectified) and cut the Champagne Bottle birthday cake, also made by Erika. Some of our members went on stage with the band for an ‘audience participation’ number, which they carried off with style. We all agreed it was a great party and a fantastic way to celebrate our milestone event.
