Welcome to the West Norfolk Singers

CORONAVIRUS
AS OF SEPTEMBER 2021, WE ARE NOW BACK AND REHEARSING AGAIN.



Like many towns and villages, Heacham has a long history of choral singing and there was certainly a Heacham Choral Society in the past.

Evidence exists that there were at least five choirs in the late 1940s and early 1950s and some of these participated in the Hunstanton Festival of Arts in the early 1950s.

Original minutes exist from 1983 for “The Heacham & West Norfolk Singers”. However, more recently, this name was changed to “The West Norfolk Singers” to reflect the wider area of membership of the choir.

Rehearsals are held from September to May on Wednesday evenings from 19.15 to 21.15 at Heacham Methodist Church in Station Road.

Concerts are performed at Christmas and also in the Spring, usually in local churches, as these venues are the most suitable. All proceeds are split equally between the church and the choir, raising many thousands of pounds over the years.

The mix of music sung encompasses both sacred and secular, with some old favourites but frequently introducing something new to challenge both members and audiences alike.

Membership currently stands around 26, with a good balance of male and female voices.

Just so you know, our new logo consists of not just our name but also the music of "Grandfather Clock" written by our Accompanist, William Moss and performed by the Singers.

NEW MUSICAL
DIRECTOR



Our previous Musical Director, Nigel Wickens, decided that it was time that he retired after the end of our Spring season of concerts in May 2018. Over the Summer 2018 we appointed Roger Dear to take over which he did until the end of 2018. Then Jean Hornbuckle came on the scene and drove us forward for a couple of performances in Hunstanton Town Hall and Snettisham Village Hall. Information about Jean will be included on the "Musical Director and Accompanist" page of this website soon. We are all very excited about the future and hope that we can recruit further singers to help boost the ranks.
