Embrace a festive spirit of collaboration with Scratch Choir – learning favourite Christmas choral music in a day. Everyone is invited to join in, and no experience is necessary.

Join us for an invigorating and inspiring day of choral singing, learning and performing festive repertoire with conductor Ben Vonberg-Clark.

This year, Scratch Choir will explore a number of short pieces, including some of Britten's best-loved Christmas works and other gems from across the centuries. Scores will be provided, so just bring along a pencil and a sense of festive fun.

Complete your day by enjoying lunch at our River View Café & Bar or MALT café and takeaway.

An informal run-through for friends and family will take place at 3.30pm. Admission is free and tickets are not required.


General booking opens on Saturday 3 August at 10am.
