A warm welcome to you from the Ratcliffe Chorale. 


           For over 25 years members of the Ratcliffe Chorale have enjoyed singing together whilst helping to raise money for a variety of charities. We make no charge for performing so if there is an event you are organising and at which you would like us to sing please get in touch using the form on the contact page of this website.

             We sing a variety of music - songs from popular musicals, gospel tunes, sacred music, pop songs and Christmas carols. We also tackle longer works such as Vivaldi's Gloria , Stainer's Crucifixion and Bach's Magnificat. The main aim is to enjoy our singing.

We have had to defer our July 2022 concert due to COVID.



 The Chorale meets indoors for rehearsals, at Barkby Church, normally on a Monday evening, from 7:30 to 9:15. For more information see the Rehearsals section or  please get in touch using the Contact Section of this site.
