As the Government has lifted lockdown, the relaxation on indoor groups gives a green light to singing and choirs across the UK.

Recognised as one of the leaders in choral singing, Grenville Jones will be restarting and launching a number of new choirs across the West of England in the weeks ahead.

Wells Good Afternoon Choir will be moving to a new venue at St Thomas Church and starting back on Tuesday August 17 with Grenville leading and accompanist Sheila Ross.

Grenville said: “We certainly have not been idle during these last few months and plans are in place.

"My popular Good Afternoon Choirs were all forced to stop. They will all restart with the addition of nine new choirs as well.

“It’s been such a hard time for the members of our choirs who have desperately missed the singing and social friendships, but at last, we can look forward to being together again, singing, smiling and planning concerts which will support many local organisations and charities.

“We introduced Zoom rehearsals as well as popular YouTube sofa singing during 2020/2021, but it’s just wonderful to be back ‘live’ again.”

There are no auditions required to join Grenville’s Good Afternoon Choirs. The accent is clearly on enjoyment through music together and making new friends. More than 800 people sang in the choirs that were forced to close last March.
