Bursary Fund for Young People

As a result of generous legacies from a long standing members of the choir, Pauline Holman and Winifred Thorne, we are able to provide free membership of the choir to young people. We are also grateful to Waitrose for supporting our Bursary Fund through their Community Matters scheme.

Free membership includes the cost of a subscription worth £78 a year and music hire.

To be eligible you must be aged between 16 and 23 (on the 1st September in the year you are applying) and to pass the voice test required.

If accepted, you can receive the bursary for a maximum of three years.

If you wish to apply, please e-mail our membership secretary on
