Merry Christmas everyone! Know we miss you all and hope we can be with you soon. We wish you a safe festive period, and a 2021 that’s a little less turbulent!

This time last year we’d done our Christmas concert and raised lots of money for the Good Shepherd Ministry. We know this year is strange and has been tough for so many, but if you did have a spare pound or two, you can now donate via text to GSM. All the details can be found below, or you can head to their website.

Last night would have been our concert. While we were sad last night knowing we couldn’t be with you, we’re so proud of all of you staying home and saving lives. We’re so proud of our NHS. We’re so proud of the kindness we’re seeing.
Stay safe. Be kind. See you as soon as we can

15/03/2020

We’ve taken the tough decision to put our rehearsals on hold until after the Easter break. At the moment the plan is to start again on 20th April.

If you were looking to join us, know that we’ll be back as soon as we can be.

Stay safe everyone ❤️

Hi everyone
Due to the current climate we have made the difficult decision as a choir to postpone our spring concert.
We will let you know a new date as soon as possible.
Refunds will be issued in the coming days to all who have bought tickets.
We hope you’ll all be able to come to the new date, and thank you for your continued support for our choir community.

With love from the Festival Community Choir

Our Story

We are the up and coming Black Country Community Choir which is vibrant, exciting and fun, focused on building a singing community of all backgrounds and ages, where people feel welcome and comfortable. Our 'festival' name suggests there's always something to celebrate!

We meet at the Beacon Centre for the Blind, Wolverhampton, on Mondays from 7.30pm. A licensed bar/coffee shop is available from 6.00pm till 9.00pm.

We're focused on creating energy, enthusiasm and just having good old fun! When you join us you will feel uplifted, sing fantastic music and connect with other like-minded people in a vibrant and relaxed setting! There's no formality here! When you leave, we want you to go revived, invigorated and engaged.

We'll teach an eclectic mix of contemporary, pop, musical theatre and gospel music by ear. No auditions or previous experience needed, just a willingness to have a go! All our music and harmonies are taught by ear, so no need to read music!
Your first session is absolutely free. We'll offer at least three concerts a year but many more social activities.

So if you're looking for something a bit different...come and try us out. Don't just sing in the shower...sing with us!
