WELCOME TO THE AXMINSTER & DISTRICT CHORAL SOCIETY

DO YOU ENJOY SINGING?  WHY NOT JOIN US !


We are a friendly, enthusiastic, non-auditioned choir of around 80 voices.  Rehearsals are on Tuesday evenings in term time in The Minster Church, Trinity Square, Axminster at 7.30 pm.


Points to note for prospective members:

Some of us do not read music, don’t be put off if you are in this category! Our rehearsals include help with understanding musical notation and texts of pieces not in English, also help with the basics of how to sing well and make the most of the voice that you have. If you would like to join us your most welcome, you can contact us by:


Email:     join@axminsterchoral.co.uk


Phone:    01404 881838



You can also visit our rehearsal night for an informal chat during term time on Tuesday at 7.00pm before our rehearsal starts at 7.30pm.

Our Society presents two major Spring and Autumn concerts and normally two informal June and December Concerts. We also arrange a few Come and Sing Workshops in local Churches as well as some social and Fund Raising events. We occasionally invite schools where practicable to participate in some of our concerts especially at Xmas.
