‘We are a lively, committed choir of approximately 40 people. We draw our membership from across East Kent. The Choir has built up a reputation in the local area, mixing high standards with a warm and friendly social life ... Our programme promotes musical variety, growth and development. All members should be prepared to perform challenging works. We work together as a team, to attain the best possible standard, whilst enjoying our singing. Our Spring and Autumn concerts are a blend of both religious and secular music, demonstrating the choir's versatility. Our Summer concerts offer a more lighthearted repertoire of music. We also perform at Carol Concerts in local churches at Christmas and sing at weddings or funerals by appointment.’

'Consisting of over 100 voices, Folkestone Choral Society is the largest choir in the area and draws members from as far afield as Deal, Canterbury, Ashford and Romney Marsh. We exist as a Charitable organisation to bring the enjoyment of choral music sung to a high standard to the community of the Shepway District in Kent and many visitors to the area. No other country in the world has such a strong tradition of choral music ... Our programmes range from the great oratorios to more modern composers. Some concerts also include popular concertos and orchestral pieces to complement the choral works. The Society aims to cover over a number of years the major classical works for choir and orchestra from the 17th to 21st centuries.'

Based in Saltwood, Hythe, Kent: ‘The Society was founded in 1921. It was always intended that it should remain a small choir to serve the needs of village life and over the years membership has fluctuated between 30 and 40, except in 1948 when it had a record 60 members. The current membership is just over 50 ... The Society performs two or three concerts during the year. The programmes have been varied, ranging, in a lighter vein from Gilbert and Sullivan, Edward German and “Songs from the Shows”, to the classical choir repertoire of Bach, Fauré, Handel, Haydn, Mendelssohn and Vivaldi. At Christmas, the Society has a carol concert in the church’.

‘A beautiful Victorian structure, the Leas Bandstand still hosts regular concerts throughout the summer season. Its tent-shaped canopy supported by cast-iron columns provides shelter for the band while deckchairs are set out for audiences.’ The concerts take place on most Sundays (a few Saturdays), with performances from 2.30PM to 4.30PM: ‘Performances are subject to change and are weather dependent’.
