Join us for our summer term of singing in the woods! 

We have a glorious, tucked away woodland location close to central Dorking where will be enjoy the long evenings and birdsong as we sing harmony arrangements of folk songs old and new.

Following the school terms, we have a longer 7 weeks of singing with a woodland party on the last night, before the summer break. 


And…this is our last ever term as the Birch Tree Folk Choir Dorking! We are so grateful to Emily who had the vision and worked so hard to set up this choir that we love so much. If you are not already on Philippa’s mailing list and want to know about the new choir starting in September, please join the mailing list here:
