Our mission is to make the joy of music accessible to all.

Whitstable Choral Society has a reputation for quality and range of performance. We perform at least 4 times a year around the Canterbury district, with world-class soloists and the Festival Chamber Orchestra.

The choir dates back over eighty years and prides itself on being a community choir. Whitstable Choral Society’s Director, David Newsholme, leads the singers to perform beyond their expectations with great passion and sensitivity.

Our friendly society welcomes enthusiastic singers of all abilities who are committed to the discipline of regular rehearsals and concerts. We rehearse on Tuesday evenings from 7.30pm to 9.30pm at St John’s Church in Argyle Road, Whitstable.

Parking in Middle Wall car park (5 minutes' walk from St Alphege Church). The audience will be invited to sing traditional carols with the choir. Children in the audience will be invited to perform "Away in a Manger" under David Flood's personal direction. Afterwards, every child will receive a small reward for their glorious contribution. This concert is a wonderful mixture of choral and well known seasonal music for the whole family – a Whitstable calendar highlight.
