The Village Quire are a superbly talented group of close-harmony singers with original arrangements by Dave Newell and story-telling by actor Phil Smith.

At our summer school last year (2016) we were treated to their wonderful adaptation of Precious Bane.

If you have never seen The Village Quire, you are in for a treat.

“The Village Quire have a reputation for spine-tingling harmony singing with all the emotional clout, subtlety of expression and love of life that you get when voices are raised together in song.”
