Find your voice with Global Voices!

This is an exciting new take on what you thought you knew about choirs! Global Voices are a friendly bunch who celebrate music, heritage and refugees and migrants seeking sanctuary and their allies.

We will be singing songs from around the world including Eastern European harmonies, Pop, rhythms from Africa and soulful gospel.

There is no audition required, and beginners are very welcome as we learn songs by ear.

It’s free, fun, safe, joyful and everyone is welcome.

Dates and times

Term 2: Tue 18 Apr – Tue 18 Jul 2023

Sessions take place weekly each Tuesday, from 1pm – 2.30pm

Please note

Sessions are for 18+ adults, but babes in arms and children up to 5 are welcome too. We will have a small play area to keep them entertained, but babes in arms and children must be booked in advance. You can do this on the next page when booking your place.
