Rehearsals take place on Thursday evenings.




Berwick Parish Church



TD15 1DF

Thursday evenings

7.30 to 9.30pm

There is plenty of parking near the church in the Parade car park and on Wallace Green.

The 2022/23 season starts on Thursday 8th September at 7.30pm in Berwick Parish Church.

Please try to ensure that you attend as many rehearsals as possible and that you email the Director of Music, Catherine Fish, if you are unable to attend.

Our Membership Secretary records each member’s details and keeps a record of attendances; please tick your name in the register at the beginning of each rehearsal. 


Please bring a soft-leaded pencil and eraser with you to rehearsals so that you can annotate your scores as indicated by the Director of Music.

There is an additional rehearsal on the afternoon of our concerts.


Vocal scores are generally obtained through the lending library system and are given out by our Librarian free of charge to members at the start of each term.


After each concert you are asked to return all borrowed scores to the Librarian with any pencil markings erased. Anyone unable to take part in the concert is responsible for returning his or her score to the Librarian in person as soon as possible.


Late return of scores may incur a fine from the lending library which the member will be expected to pay.


Very occasionally, if we cannot source hire scores, it may be necessary to ask members to buy their own.


The current annual Berwicks Arts Choir membership is £90 per annum or £45 per term.


Details of payment options are available from our Treasurer. Please contact us for information.
