The Marchington Singers is a friendly, mixed-age, mixed-ability, mixed-voice choir based in the beautiful village of Marchington in Staffordshire.
We perform regularly and our next performance is an evening of Christmas music from 7:30pm on Saturday, 7th December 2019 in the church of St Mary the Virgin, Bridge Street, Uttoxeter, ST14 8AW.
Our most recent concert, an evening of Edwardian Music, took place from 7:30pm on July 13th, 2019 in the Renew Chuch building, Uttoxeter at 67 High Street Uttoxeter, ST14 7JQ.
We have been singing together for over 30 years, 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 twice-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 Student Bursary scheme for two aspiring singers up to the age of 25.
We currently have around 50 singers. If you would like to join us, our weekly rehearsals are on Wednesdays at 7.30pm in Marchington Village Hall. Please contact us – you will be very welcome!

Testimonials received after the events:
"As you were busy on Saturday evening, I did not have a chance to thank you (for the Choir, Soloists and especially the Accompanist and of course yourself!) for a fantastic Concert.
It is the first time we have attended – informed at the Marchington Flower Festival by Maggie! – and hopefully it will not be our last!
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!”
"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
“Our granddaughter was so moved she made us promise to go again next year!” Stuart and Joan, Staffordshire
