The Worcester Festival Choral Society is an independent, self-funding charitable organisation (Reg No: 506826). All Choir and Committee members’ time is given freely. Our main sources of revenue are derived from ticket sales, members’ subscriptions and partnerships with individuals, Trusts and businesses who share our vision and whose support we gratefully acknowledge.
The Choir is always pleased to hear from new supporters, and adopts a tailored and inventive approach to ensure that your aspirations can be met in a true and sustained partnership.
We would be extremely grateful for your support at any level and hope that you find something on this page to interest you.
We are a friendly group of amateur singers, enthusiastic about classical choral music. We welcome new members whenever our numbers permit, and invite potential supporters of all kinds to get in touch. Below are just a few ways in which you could become involved. Why not try one of them; it would be great to hear from you!
Join the ChoirIf you are a singer and can read music, why not Join us for a few rehearsals to see if you would enjoy singing with us (membership places subject to availability). Alternatively you could take part in one of our ‘Come and Sing’ events.
Buy ticketsOne of the most important things you can do to support us is to buy tickets for our concerts, and encourage as many of your friends as possible to come along too. Tickets for the current season are priced £10-£25 and are available online at wfcstickets.org.uk; from ‘Worcester Live’ Box Office at Huntingdon Hall Worcester, telephone 01905 611427; or purchased on the Cathedral door on the evening of the concert (subject to availability). Concessions on some seats are available to people aged 60 or over, to those registered disabled and to full-time students. Children aged 9-15 years accompanying a paying adult are admitted free (limited to one children’s ticket per paying adult). Parties of 10 or more booking together will receive a 10% reduction.
If you are not an active singer but you enjoy classical or choral music and supporting the arts, you might like to consider becoming a Patron.
Perhaps you know someone who runs a business and who would be interested in advertising in our programme, or even sponsoring a concert or one of our soloists. Our Marketing & Publicity Officer Michelle Whitefoot would be delighted to hear from you. Contact us.

Anyone purchasing products, gifts or music through Amazon can support Worcester Festival Choral Society by using our special Amazon link for access – and the Society will receive a donation worth 10% of your purchase value. (The link takes you to what looks like the normal Amazon home page, but in fact the system knows you have used our WFCS link and donates to us accordingly when you pay).
It won’t cost you anything, but provides an invaluable, small additional income for the Society each year.
Thanks for supporting WFCS while you shop!
We have several social events during the year including such things as a quiz night during the spring term, occasional summer garden parties, and Christmas and end of term gatherings with food and drink at a local pub. Sue White, our Social Secretary, would be delighted to tell you of our next event, and we would welcome you to join us for a drink, a bite to eat and an opportunity to enjoy an informal chat together, so why not contact her?
