ABOUT THE CHOIR
All Saints' Festival Choir consists of around fifty singers from all over mid and west Kent from various choirs and choral societies, as well as a number of people who have had little previous experience of singing. Although the choir works to a very high standard, there are no auditions, and all are welcome who are able to attend rehearsals. Those with less confidence are encouraged to come to as many rehearsals
as they can, to give themselves as much help as possible. In addition to the concerts, two or three social events are held each year, which help defray the high costs of holding the concerts. Retiring collections at the concerts and donations from social events have been made in aid of various charities. For 2018 we are supporting the iCare Day Centre Trust, based in Green Street Green, which supports the provision of help and support to stroke victims. Our 2017 charity was the Yomelelani Trust, helping children in South Africa.

The choir rehearses during term time on Tuesday evenings, occasional other weekday evenings and some Sunday afternoons. The choir relies on singers attending as many rehearsals as they feel they need, both for their own and for others' sakes! Rehearsals take place in All Saints' Church (or Hall), Bark Hart Road, Orpington, BR6 0QD, unless otherwise advised. See the "Contacts & tickets" page for a map.New choir members are very welcome. Previous singing experience is not necessary (nearly everyone can sing!)
Several people in the choir who had not sung before have been greatly surprised by what they can achieve with some hard work and a little encouragement.

The start date for rehearsals for the next concert will be available soon.
