If you're over 8 years old, enjoy singing or can play a musical instrument (wind/bass guitar) and are free on a Friday evening in term time, why not come and join us?!

Rehearsals take place every Friday evening in term time at St Joseph's Primary School, Pontefract Road, Castleford starting at 7:15pm. The younger choir members finish at 8:30pm, but the band and older members of the choir continue after a short break until 9:15pm. Most band and choir rehearsals take place separately in different rooms, but we do join together every so often to practice our joint items.

Feel free to visit us during a rehearsal - either to join in, or just sit and listen, and see what you think!

Members' Subscriptions
Once you've attended a few rehearsals and have decided you want to join properly, you'll be given an enrolment form to complete and from that point you will be asked to pay a membership subscription. This is currently £12 per term, paid either online or in person at the start of each term.
