Sing yourself merry every Monday! Weekly
7 – 8.30pm each May Monday evening (except Bank hols)
We are enjoying singing in the beautiful gallery space at Studio Upstairs for a second series of weekly Learn to sing sessions. 2-4 Park Street in the centre of Croydon. (Where Turtle’s used to be!). Dates below.
Join us either on a drop in basis for our themed evenings or save money by joining in a block. The themes will always incorporate some general global harmony songs as well.
May 8th – An Elizabethan Catch about May, along with a little Gospel and a touch of Tanzania
May 15th – A little LGBT item for IDAHOT day plus some Taize and a Tree song!
May 22nd – Let’s revisit some of our favourites so far and take them up a notch! Plus a surprise new one. Still easy to drop in to.
June 5th – Something for World Environmental day and World Oceans day.
Fees: 4 week block £20 or £15 concessions. Drop in rates £7 or £5 concessions so you can still miss one and pay less by block booking. Please bring cheques (payable to Creative Croydon) or cash on the night. Thanks!
Please come at 6.45 if paying that evening and please let us know if you are coming so we can put out the right number of chairs. Bring a bottle of water as singing is thirsty work.

Lovesong for you
Happy to send you a free mp3 if you would like it for your collection or a friend’s wedding or funeral. I would love your help to increase my Youtube likes for this cover song as I hope to get funding for my EP: Please take a listen and give me a Youtube like, if you do! You can also subscribe to hear my new songs if you would like to. 🙂 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pspfk5–QIg
Carers choir session with Katie Rose
Monthly sessions take place on Wednesdays 10.30am-11.45am – there’s time for a cup of tea before/ after in the Cafe at the Carers Support Centre. It’s always fine to just drop in when you can, we know that Carers have lots of commitments. Call them for the next session date. https://naturalvoice.net/choir/croydon-carers-choir
Creative birthday & anniversary gifts
For an imaginative gift consider vocal coaching vouchers for a personal singing or speaking session. A joint session can be a lovely thing to do together. One to one sessions can help a dream come true, for speaking, singing, or songwriting. Or you can always treat yourself! Ask Catherine for details if maybe interested.
Wishing you a merry and mellifluous May!
