'Formed in the 1930's. A group of ladies decided to start their own entertainment programme in Hornsea, because it was difficult to travel to concerts in Hull. Like many social organisations, activities were suspended during World War II, but they were restarted in 1948 ... The society continues to thrive after more than 70 years ... The society are very grateful to the United Reformed Church for storing its Grand Piano.'

‘Formed January 2016 ... We had a very clear vision, to enjoy singing, have fun and to raise money for charity. We also wanted the choir to be open to all so therefore auditions, ability to read music and previous experience are not required. We have two main concerts and smaller fundraising events throughout the year, helped by our friends of The Beverley Singers.‘

‘A Choral Society with about 100 members ... When it was founded, the choir was under the auspices of the East Riding County Education Committee. Members paid an annual subscription fee of 10 shillings (50p), which was increased to £1 in 1973. Concert deficits were approved by the County Music Committee and paid by the Council, so the choir had no financial worries. However, in 1977, after financial support had been withdrawn by Humberside County Council, it was necessary for the choir to become an independent body ... The choir is now self-sufficient by subscriptions, grants and fund-raising activities to cover the £25,000 needed every year.‘
