The Voyagers Chorus are a community singing group. We met when we took part in the recent ReStoke performance at Tunstall Swimming Baths, called, “The Voyagers”.
After the performance we realised that we had so enjoyed singing together that we wanted to continue on a more informal level. We sing a wide variety of songs from a variety of cultures, blending simple chants with more intricate harmonies, to create a lovely flowing medley of music.
Join us for a workshop at London Rd Festival in Stoke, at Boothen Gardens on Saturday 13th June from 12 to 1pm.
You do not have to be a “good” singer – it’s just for fun. If you enjoy making sounds, like music and fancy trying something together, please join us.
Location: at the Art Stop Shop in Stoke town centre

There is no audition – everyone is welcome – all ages. You don’t need to read music. It’s just for fun. We will sing simple songs in different languages, maybe some harmonies and rounds. We will have the chance to sing outside on the London Rd Festival site in Boothen Gardens, if we want to.
Go on – give it a go! You know you want to….
