Join darts’ inclusive singing community at The Point

Musician Janet Wood sings with members of the Quirky Choir

Do you love to sing but feel you lack the confidence or experience to join a choir? darts, Doncaster’s creative health charity, is on a mission to change that with their inclusive and welcoming choirs.

Quirky Choir: No experience? No problem!

Quirky Choir is open to everyone over 18, regardless of gender, background, or ability. No auditions are required, and you don’t need to be able to read music. It’s all about the joy of singing and the chance to connect with your community. Quirky Choir meet on Wednesday during term time at The Point, from 6.30pm-8.30pm. Try your first session for free, then it’s just £4.50 per week. There’s no need to book, you can just turn up.

Hear Quirky Choir Live

In May 2024, Quirky Choir will be performing at several events in Doncaster, offering the perfect opportunity to come and see what they’re all about:

  • “Behold Ye Ramblers” (Wednesday 8th May, 7:45pm at Cast) – Quirky Choir will be lending their vocals to this new play by Neil Gore about The Clarion newspaper and the organisations formed by its readership.
  • “Celebrating Older People” (Wednesday 29th May, 6:30pm at Cast) – Experience the joy of singing with Quirky Choir at this special event and help to gather ideas for instant inclusion in a song called ‘I Am Not My Age’.
  • “Sinfonia” (Friday 31st May–Saturday 1st June, 2:30pm & 7:30pm at Cast) – Quirky Choir members will be part of a moving symphony of voices in this performance created by The Performance Ensemble, celebrating the stories of older people.

Looking for a fun and inclusive activity for your child or young person?

Look no further than darts’ Swag and Swaglets! These dynamic youth choirs are open to 9-16 year olds who love music, want to perform, and find their tribe. These free choirs offer a welcoming and supportive space to learn new skills, perform chart hits, and discover a passion for music. No experience or auditions are necessary, and all abilities and needs are catered for. Both groups meet on Tuesday evenings during term time at The Point. Swaglets (ages 9-12) meets from 4.30pm-5.15pm and Swag (ages 13-16) follows on from 5.15pm-6.15pm.
