What’s happening Merton...
Every Thursday, 4.00 – 5.00 pm
Now in its third year, our community choir has become a firm favourite in our programme. Ideal for carers looking for an after school activity, or people who may be experiencing isolation and would like to meet new friends.
Everyone is welcome* – come along, have a cup of tea with us and sing your heart out. There is no need to audition and no need for experience! Just drop us a note to let us know you’re coming.
