Join our upcoming Christmas term

As people in England prepare to step out of social isolation with COVID-19 restrictions coming to an end there has never been a better time to join our warm and welcoming community choir.

We’re beginning our new Christmas term this November and are looking for new members to join us.

We will never ask you to audition or sing by yourself. We want everyone to have fun and enjoy singing together without any pressure. You don’t need music experience to join Collective, we’ll help you get started from your first rehearsal.

We’re looking for members who are;

  • music lovers and enjoy singing
  • willing to use some of their own time to listen to the rehearsal tracks and learn the music
  • aged 16+
  • able to stick to our code of conduct

We can take Visa, MasterCard and American Express payments, including contactless and mobile payments (like Apple Pay).

As part of our COVID-safe measures, we will only accept cash in exceptional cases.
