Information for members

In this section of the website we provide information to both current as well as prospective members.

Handel’s Messiah – November 24th – Hexham Abbey

Rehearsals for this start on September 5th at 7:30pm. We will be using the new Watkins Shaw edition, although there seem to be only minor differences between this and older Watkins Shaw editions.

Many people will have their own copies but, if not, please arrive slightly early to collect a library copy.

New members are welcome!


The annual subscription for members is £85. For those joining in January the subscription is £60, reflecting the considerably higher costs of putting on a concert with an orchestra. The subscription for the summer is then free.

For those wishing to pay their subscription by bank transfer, the choir bank account is:
