What we're about

Come and sing for fun with Many Voices LGBTIQ (and allies) singing evenings. We meet on the second Saturday of alternate months in Westminster (7.30–9.00 pm, £10). The sessions in Crofton Park, SE London, are more ad hoc, so keep your eyes open for Meetups.

There's no need to read music, all songs are taught by ear. No auditions, no performances, no commitment required. We just sing for fun: spirited songs, fun ditties and rounds, and inspirational songs, nothing too complicated to pick up in a few minutes. We genuinely welcome lesbian, gay, bi, trans*, queer, questioning, intersex and asexual people - and our allies.

We meet in a lovely venue, the Westminster Quaker Meeting House, which resonates with calmness and peace. The Crofton Park venue is the Undercroft of St Hilda's Church, a warm space with a wooden floor. Both have level access.

If you would like to come and sing your heart out, but are maybe feeling a bit nervous, get in touch beforehand and we'll do what we can to help you over the threshold :-) You'll definitely feel better after a good sing!

We're also on Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/groups/manyvoicesl... (https://www.facebook.com/groups/manyvoiceslgbt/)) and Twitter (@manyvoiceslgbt). Our website is http://www.many-voices.co.uk . You can email us at sing@many-voices.co.uk.
