2022-23 PROGRAMME

Latest news on social media

Practices:

We restarted practices in October 2022- every Monday evening 8.00-9.30pm in St John's Church, Spring Grove, Kingston-on-Thames. We welcome new members at any time, but if possible please get in touch beforehand, as finding the correct entrance to the church can be very confusing!

Coming up:

Our Christmas Wassail at the Willoughby Arms, Willoughby Road, Kingston on Monday 19 December, 7.45-9.45 or so, with guests Ewell St Mary Morris Men, Phoenix Clog and Pielarks singers. All are welcome - come through to the courtyard at the back of the pub - dancing, songs, mince pies and jollity.
