100 years of choral enjoyment!

We’re so proud to be celebrating 100 years of making music in Sussex! The choir has a fascinating history, dating right back to members of Ditchling WI meeting regularly to sing at each other's houses. Thirty years later it became known as the ‘Ditchling Choral Society’, men had become members and now, 100 years on, we are a mixed voice choir with a great reputation. We can look back on some wonderful times - of concerts, conductors, overseas trips and celebrations -  and have significant plans in place for the future.
