About us

TWMVC-290

Founded in 1938, we are currently about 40 strong. We have a lot of fun!

Over the decades we have raised many tens if not hundreds of thousands of pounds for charities and churches. Occasionally we sing for businesses and individuals who want to mark some special event. Former Mayor Julian Stanyer has described us as “an asset to the town”.

We sing 6-10 concerts a year including one for ourselves which for several years has been held in May at Trinity Theatre, Tunbridge Wells.

We have also sung at many prestigious venues—The Royal Festival Hall, The Royal Albert Hall, Millennium Stadium, Rochester Cathedral, Buckingham Palace, and London’s Guildhall.

We have sung on radio and television and won awards in a number of competitions.

The choir has toured abroad many times, including to Germany, Belgium and Holland, and taken part in the Menin Gate Ceremony which was a very special experience. We have hosted visits by choirs from those and other countries.
