We are West Malling Community Choir, an inclusive and friendly musical group, formed to bring local people together to enjoy singing and making music.
West Malling Community Choir are going to be singing 26 songs at our next Zoom rehearsal on Tuesday 28th April as part of the #2.6 Challenge in support of Spadework in Offham. Spadework provide care, support and opportunities to adults with learning disabilities and have seen a sharp downtown in their income since the Coronavirus outbreak.

We have been going since February 2012 after an appeal to see if a choir would be popular with people from the local community. The response was amazing with a massive turn-out for the first session and after a short trial the members voted to carry on and West Malling Community choir become a permanent fixture. We now have around 120 people on our books and 60-100 people come along on a weekly basis to sing together.
Our concert on 21st March has now been postponed due to the covid-19 virus situation.
Our next concert is with the fabulous Mixed Blessings on Saturday 21st March at 5pm in St. Mary’s Church in West Malling. Tickets are now on sale!
We put on a number of concerts during the year, some of our own, some jointly with other musical organisations and usually in the community such as turning on the Christmas lights in West Malling or in a charity event such as the Summer Open Air Festival at Spadeworks in Offham. In 2016 we sang in both Rochester and Canterbury Cathedral and in 2017 we made our debut in London at the Brandenberg festival. In April 2019 we sang in the Royal Albert Hall supporting the amazing Music Man Project. We love the challenge of having something to work towards and although performing in public isn’t for everyone, it’s great fun, if not a little scary!
