The Malmesbury Singers is well known locally for its many wonderful performances in Malmesbury Abbey and very occasionally in other local churches and venues.
Recently our choir had a mention in the early May edition of the Wiltshire & Gloucestershire Standard, which we were pleased to see, with our choirmaster Iain Duffin achieving a lifetime ambition of his! You can read it here.
We are a friendly mixed choir, and the choir has been performing in Malmesbury since 1961. We are privileged to rehearse and give concerts in Malmesbury Abbey, an inspiring building steeped in the history of England and Wessex.
We rehearse every Monday evening during term time (Spring and Autumn terms) from 7.30pm – 9.15pm in Malmesbury Abbey. We sing a wide variety of choral music to suit all tastes and perform regularly with full orchestra and professional soloists.
Our most recent event was our Spring Concert, the Bach St John Passion. You can find out more by clicking this link.

During the summer, we have a reduced choir and we shall be holding a series of four “singing evenings” simply to keep us from getting rusty! It’s often an ideal time to come along and try us out. Sessions will be held at the Kings Church, Abbey Row, Malmesbury; they are pay as you go, stand alone and at £5 per session, a bargain!
Our next concert will be held on November 30 2019 in Malmesbury, when we shall be singing A Ceremony of Carols by Benjamin Britten and When Icicles Hang by John Rutter.
In September 2018 we hosted a workshop singing day with the talented Nigel Perrin. Do check out our “Events” as new things are added from time to time, or our Facebook page. If you have a workshop or a concert coming up in the area, please contact us if you would like to invite the Malmesbury Singers along!
