Ruddington is a large village some five miles south of Nottingham. Ruddington and District Choral Society was formed in 1962 as part of local evening class provision. When the Local Education Authority ceased to fund such activities for adults, the choir became independent. Membership fluctuates, but currently there are some sixty or so members who meet on Monday evenings in Saint Peter’s Junior School, generally following the school terms until Spring Bank Holiday when we break for the summer. Occasionally we rehearse in Ruddington Parish Church, the venue for many of our concerts. We participate in a small number of concerts each year, accompanied usually by organ or by a small group of instrumentalists. We generally give a charity concert at Christmas time, performing a Community Messiah (with audience participation) or a carol concert in alternating years. A genuine welcome is offered to new members who wish to join the choir, which can be initiated by activating ‘join’, above.
