St. George’s Church Choir has been in existence since the consecration of the church in 1897. Under the stewardship of our Director of Music, James Hibbert, we continue to maintain the choral tradition enrich the worship of the church.

We have around 25 singers, including children, teenagers and adults and offer a Choral Scholarship programme. We sing a wide variety of anthems, hymns, canticles and chants from all historical periods of church music.

We work hard, enjoy performing together, take pride in what we do, and collectively hold a good sense of humour! Most importantly, we love to sing.

We are always delighted to welcome new members. For more information on how to join the Choir, please see

In May 2020 the Choir will be visiting Blackburn Cathedral to sing Choral Evensong. Another Cathedral visit is being planned for the Autumn too.
