The Malmesbury Singers is well known locally for its many wonderful performances in Malmesbury Abbey and very occasionally in other local churches and venues.
Unfortunately all rehearsals and concerts have not taken place during 2020 due to government restrictions. We are now planning a return to singing from Monday October 12th 2020 with certain restrictions in place following Malmesbury Abbey’s risk assessment. If you are a choir member wishing to resume singing, please click here to access the relevant page.
The Malmesbury had a mention in the early 2019 May edition of the Wiltshire & Gloucestershire Standard, which we were pleased to see, with our choirmaster Iain Duffin achieving a lifetime ambition of his! You can read it here.
We are a friendly mixed choir, and the choir has been performing in Malmesbury since 1961. We are privileged to rehearse and give concerts in Malmesbury Abbey, an inspiring building steeped in the history of England and Wessex.
We normally rehearse every Monday evening during term time (Spring and Autumn terms) from 7.30pm – 9.15pm in Malmesbury Abbey. We sing a wide variety of choral music to suit all tastes and perform regularly with full orchestra and professional soloists.
Our last event for 2019 was our Autumn Concert, “Peace on Earth”. You can find out more by clicking this link.

During summer 2019, we had a reduced choir and held a series of four “singing evenings” to keep us from getting rusty! It’s often an ideal time to come along and try us out. Further details for 2020 will emerge closer to the time.
Our next concert scheduled for March 28 2020 in Malmesbury, when we were due to singi our concert entitled “Beethoven250”. See “current programme” for more information unfortunately had to be postponed due to the Coronavirus / COVID-19 pandemic and we are hoping to reschedule for 10 October 2020. More details to emerge in due course.
In September 2018 we hosted a workshop singing day with the talented Nigel Perrin. Do check out our “Events” as new things are added from time to time, or our Facebook page. If you have a workshop or a concert coming up in the area, please contact us if you would like to invite the Malmesbury Singers along!
