The Choir is very fortunate to have Mary Chant as our Musical Director. Mary is well known for her work in the local amateur theatre, having played leading roles in various musical productions. She also teaches singing and is therefore able to utilise her theatrical experience and vocal talent to the great benefit of the Choir.

Jean Bell as our Accompanist, she is the organist for St John's Church in Newport, Barnstaple, and is enjoying the experience of accompanying the choir 

The Choir is honoured to have Nigel Brooks as its President. Nigel is a co​mposer and arranger and has kindly arranged items especially for the Choir, for which we are very grateful. We are also pleased to have Sue Boyle, one of our Altos, as our Assistant Musical Director.

The Choir is proud of its long-standing friendship with the Barbel Grosse Chor in Uelzen, Germany [Barnstaple's Twin Town].

The choir also enjoy exchange visits with many other choirs, please contact us if your choir would be interested in joining with us. Of course we also sing regularly with our friends in the Barnstaple MVC.

In the past the Choir has been honoured to be presented with the Town's Mayor's Cup for assistance to local organisations and also the Community Plate in recognition of our work. We have recorded three CD's which are available for sale at our Concerts.

Barnstaple Ladies Choir enjoys performing at concerts, however large or small the audience. Singing at weddings is also something of a speciality and it is a privilege to be a small part of a very special occasion.

 If you would be interested in having the Choir entertain your group please contact us.
