Will I have to perform in front of others?
That’s for you as to decide. We perform several concerts a year but there won’t be any pressure to join in if you preferred not to……. after all we’re doing it for fun and for many, once you’ve got the hang of it, performing in front of others really is fun!!

Do I have to pay to be part of the performances/events?
There is usually no cost to take part in a performance however, you will have to pay for your own transport when necessary.

Do you have facilities and access for Disabled Members?
We try to ensure that our choir rehearsals are held in venues that have disabled access and facilities on site.

What happens if I cannot come to a rehearsal
We hope you will make a regular commitment to Knot Another Choir as being part of a choir is a team effort and it’s hard to move forward together with members absent from practices. However, we know that it happens occasionally and if you can’t come, we’ll miss you! You will be able to find details of what we got up to in the Members’ section and via our weekly bulletin. The downloads are there to help you practise at home so that you can catch up with what you’ve missed, so please do make full use of them.
