What we're about
Like to sing but not religious? Based in or near London? Free on Tuesday evenings?
Then this is the choir for you! London Humanist Choir is the UK's foremost secular choir and a branch of the charity Humanists UK. We're a mixed-ability, non-auditioned group and aspire to high musical standards.
Our singers are of all ages and walks of life with a love of music and humanist outlook in common. We sing to celebrate the joy (and occasional pain) of living. We learn a lot from each other, and when we get it right, we make quite a nice noise. We certainly have fun trying.
LHC was set up in May 2009 with a legacy dedicated to the composition of humanist songs and a choir to sing them. We have since performed in London and around the UK at humanist events, stand-up comedy gigs, private parties, our own concerts, and on the street. We've made several recordings and videos, and once performed at an international concert in Norway with a fellow humanist choir!
We rehearse on Tuesdays between 7pm and 9pm in central London.
Our rehearsals are geared towards performances throughout the year, and our diary is hotting up once again! During the early phase of the pandemic, we produced several videos of our music which you can find on YouTube.
Humanists UK is the national charity working for non-religious people who seek to live ethical and fulfilling lives on the basis of reason and humanity. The choir is an active part of Humanists UK. You don't have to be a member to sing with us, but most of us are. Find out more about humanism at www.humanism.org.uk
