Barnstaple Jubilee Singers
Formed in 1977 by retired schoolmistress Mrs Nora Brown with 10 members, 5 of whom are still singing today. There are now over 30 members.
The ladies perform all over North Devon and beyond at various venues from small residential homes to large churches and theatres, mainly for charities. The choir are also available to sing at weddings, birthdays and special church services. We enjoy entertaining at local hotels during the run up to Christmas and support the Barnstaple Town Council by Carol Singing.
The Jubilee Singers are founder members of the North Devon Festival of Choirs and have taken part in every concert for the past 19 years.
Finally, after many years of great musical accompaniment, Peggy Spiers, our pianist retired at the very happy young age of OOWHOOPS (shan't say in the event she wants to keep this under her hat!).
We were very pleased to then welcome Mrs Bridget Tait as our new pianist who has now also taken retirement due to personal reasons. So.... this leaves a large void in our choir which we would very much like to fill. if you are looking to join a popular, respectable choir and can accompany us, go to our PEOPLE page, we would be delighted to hear from you! Please contact us. The reason to join a choir......? Like all of us, for friendship, team-work and to do something that makes you and others happy.... in this case, music.
