The Marchington Singers is a friendly, mixed-age, mixed-ability, mixed-voice choir based in the beautiful village of Marchington in Staffordshire.
Why not come and sing with us?
Our next concert, ‘Spring!’ will take place from 7:30pm, on 25th March 2023 at St Mary the Virgin church in the Marketplace in Uttoxeter. Tickets are available from any member of the Singers or by ordering on Eventbrite here. We will be very pleased to perform for you.
You can see and hear excerpts of our performance in 2022 of ‘A Christmas Carol’; a cantata by Ashley Thompson & Debbie McAndrew; based upon Charles Dickens’s Christmas tale here; on YouTube.
We are now performing regularly again; if it weren’t for the outbreak of Covid in 2020 we would always have been!
We have been singing together now since 1984, enjoying performances at a variety of local, national and international venues. We have delighted a wide range of audiences at concerts, weddings and festivals with a wide repertoire ranging from light favourites to four-part choral works to songs from the world of entertainment. We frequently support charities through our fundraising events and activities.
We take a keen interest in supporting and promoting the development of local talent, and our thrice-yearly concerts have featured many guest musicians, dancers and singers of all ages, some of whom have gone on to achieve international recognition. We have also recently introduced a £500 Bursary Scheme for Young Singers intended to support aspiring singers, up to the age of 25.
We currently have around 40 singers. If you would like to join us, our weekly rehearsals are on Wednesdays at 7.30pm in Marchington Village Hall, ST14 8LF. If you would like to become part of our community, please contact us – you will be made very welcome!

Christmas by Candlelight Concert 2019
“As a fluent German speaker, I can say that your performance of Tannenbaum was a delight, with excellent diction and pronunciation!” Email from a member of the audience.
“ The conductor was the best thing since sliced bread.” Sylvia Lymer.
"Last night at our Church we had a wonderful concert put on by our local choir. All the way through it I was thinking of The Marchington Singers. Although our choir were wonderful they weren’t quite as organised as The Marchington Singers and in a way that spoiled it." Denise Jukes.
Trial by Jury Concert - July 2019
"Having sung in several choral societies, etc, I do know a good choir when I hear one! The Choir’s diction was brilliant and they complimented the soloists perfectly. They all looked as it was such fun – which we felt too!” Jane Nuth - now a member of the Choir!

Remembrance Concert - November 2018
"How beautiful the concert was last night. The songs were beautiful and wonderfully arranged and the singing amazing. A lovely, yet moving, night." Amanda Leonard.
"What a wonderful evening last night. You sounded great but more than that it was so moving. My Dad used to sing Danny Boy so that got me going! Please tell all The Marchington Singers well done!" Gill Scarlett.
"The programme was balanced and appropriate for the occasion; the words were sung with meaning and conveyed the emotion of the occasion. I noticed several people wiping a tear. Congratulations to everyone for putting on a wonderful memorable event. It was an honour to be part of it!" Shirley Horton.
"You sing such varied pieces; other choirs could learn from your professionalism." Sue Moore, Derby.
