What we do

Riff Raff choir sings pop music of all genres(!) in harmony. You don't need to be able to read music: all of the parts are taught by ear, and we provide word sheets and audio tracks with which to practise. There's no audition, it's all about having fun singing and enjoying yourself! We also have regular socials :-) For more info about the choir please see About Us.



Taster session: £7
10 week term: £70*

* There are no discounts, but please talk to us if you have cashflow issues and need to split the term cost.

Sign Up Sign Up

Are there spaces available?

There is a waiting list of people wanting to join, so please don't just turn up to a choir session, do fill in the REGISTER INTEREST form. It doesn't matter if you don't know which voice part you sing, but if you do... The largest group of singers on the waiting list is Alto (mid female voice), so unfortunately if you are an Alto you'll have to wait longer to join. However, if you are a Tenor (low female voice / high male voice), Soprano (high female voice) or a man (of any voice), you are likely to be offered a place slightly sooner.

Taster sessions

We occasionally run ad-hoc taster sessions so people can give us a try, prior to joining us. We also use the first session of each term as a taster for new people who are offered a place, so it doesn't matter if you haven't managed to make it to a separate taster session.

Once you've filled in the REGISTER INTEREST form above, we will email you to let you know when we are running the next taster session.
