Following our successful Spring Concerts, STANCHESTER QUIRE - "the community choir with a difference" - will be performing a series of Summer concerts.

Note: our last practice before the Summer break is

Monday 4th July 2022 -

restart for autumn term 5th September - 21st November 2022

in the very spacious

David Hall, Roundwell Street, South Petherton

TA13 5AA. 

In the meantime, do come and see us at one of our Summer concerts, listed under the "Performances" tab.  We will be singing songs of 'hardship, hope and humour' which have either been collected from, or written about, agriculture and the countryside in the South West of England.

Our musical director is Eddie Upton, holder of the English Folk Dance and Song Society's gold badge for services to folk music.

Everyone is very welcome to come and join us; there are no auditions and the ability to read music is not essential as we learn everything by ear.  What's more, the first two weeks are free for newcomers so why not come and give it a try? 

Singing is good for the soul!

For more details, please email Bonnie at or

phone Phil on 07778 119663. 


We very much look forward to meeting you.
