‘A well-established, intimate and family friendly event in a beautiful rural setting, held in large marquees on a greenfield site in the picturesque hamlet of Stainsby, Derbyshire. It's a registered charity and a not-for-profit event run entirely by unpaid volunteers, not some faceless corporate. Stainsby is all about live music and performance: hearing, playing, writing, performing, learning. All proceeds go back into the event. Period.’ Held Mid July.

‘Singing can be good for your physical and mental health! It exercises the lungs and helps breathing. Not only that, but it can also improve sleep, increase alertness, improve posture and help lower blood pressure. Singing in a choir can reduce social isolation, improve mood and build confidence – as well as being a distraction from worries! Joining a choir can be a big step, so we don’t audition our members: all we ask is a passion for singing and a commitment to learn the music.’

‘We are an innovative and exciting choral society ... performing imaginative and stimulating concerts ... A minimum of four concerts a year and an exciting choral day, as well as other activities ... You might want to attend one of our concerts to “check us out” before your join or you might have attended one of our Choral Days. You can simply come along and join us at one of our weekly practice sessions ... Ability to read music is an advantage and members will be expected to be able to pitch the notes of the scale. New members might be asked to give an audition with the musical director who will establish the range of your voice and assign you to a suitable section of the choir.‘

'First formed in 1941 as a village choir. The tradition of singing a wide variety of music at local events and raising money for charity was established then, and has continued to the present day. Today we are a choir of 60 members ... We perform three main concerts each year and work hard to achieve high standards within a wide repertoire, including music from traditional to modern classics, from sacred and oratorio pieces to folk and show songs. Currently our membership is full, but we are always interested to hear from singers as circumstances may change. It is not essential to be able to sight read music, only to have an ability to learn and sing in parts, as help and encouragement is always available with learning CD’s provided for learning at home.'
