Voices Now is trying to find out how many choirs there are in the UK - and we need your help!

Choir-singing is fragmented. Though there are many representative bodies, thousands are working on their own such that there nobody knows what sort of choirs, where they are or even how many there are!

Voices Now would like to find out. And help those choirs become visible.

Singing in groups has measurable benefits for physical, mental and community wellbeing. We think there are many millions of people singing in choirs every week in the UK. Hence, choirs are making a massive contribution to national wellbeing and thus cutting costs for the health department.

Through our Festivals at the Roundhouse, we have successfully created collaborations with choirs from different backgrounds. But we know we’re only scratching the surface. 

We want to create a movement.

One that celebrates the singing we already have, but also improves access, encourages participation, develops skills and repertoire, facilitates collaborative artistic endeavours and gets the whole country singing.

As part of this mission we are conducting a survey to find out how many choirs there are in the UK. The results will be made publicly available on an online map so that choirs become more visible and people can see what is available in their local area.

We call on you to fill out our survey on behalf of your choir, or pass on the info to someone you know who sings in one.
Please fill in one survey entry per choir.
