Swindon Community Choir


Swindon Central Community Centre


Swindon Community Choir was started in 2000 as the Swindon Scratch Choir in the hayloft at Lower Shaw Farm, West Swindon, by Linda Lee.  Linda had a dream to create a real community choir in Swindon – an all-inclusive choir that anyone could join to experience the joy of singing with others in spine-tingling harmony!

How many people were told as a child at school that they couldn’t sing?  We set out to prove this wrong!  Singing is good for our mental and physical health and creates a sense of belonging to a community.

We teach the songs in 2, 3 or 4 part harmony, taught simultaneously by three or four song leaders in small groups.  You choose which group your voice is most comfortable with.  When the parts have been taught, everyone gets back together to sing the complete song and make a fantastic sound.

We sing mainly for the joy and fun of it, and we do occasional performances that people join in if they want – no obligation!

Session times

Alternate Monday evenings, 7.15 to 8.45pm
