Newcastle Tuneless Choir

We launched Newcastle Tuneless Choir in September 2016, and between then and now have had many happy hours “singing like no one is listening“.

The choir is managed by Ann ‘Minty’ Nicol and led by Verity Hodson Walker.  Verity is in her final year studying Music at Newcastle University and working on her dissertation based on music in supporting.  She has been singing since a young age and is really looking forward to singing with us and having lots of fun!

The choir will sing popular songs from all eras, and even the occasional local song without caring if they’re the right notes or even in the right order.  So it’s everything from Beatles, ABBA, Elvis and Queen

No parts, no judgement, and definitely no pressure.  If you’ve been told you can’t sing in tune, or think you lack the ability or confidence to do so, then we are the choir for you!

Since March 2020 we have been singing together online via Zoom and we remain in that zone for the moment.  It is totally Covid safe and you can join us from the comfort of your very own sofa.  We have heaps of fun in our party-like sessions, attracting people from many different backgrounds and ages as well as from various counties in the UK and countries including the USA.

We gather to sing like no one is listening over Zoom on alternate Saturday’s between 2.30pm and 3.30pm

Dates for 2021 are:

  • April 10th and 24th
  • May 8th and 22nd
  • June 5th and 19th

A session is £5 and this covers a whole household so gather round and join in the fun.  Other options to suit every Covid budget and further details of all sessions can be seen and booked via our website at :

When we do meet up again, we’ll be returning to The Main Hall in the Brunswick Methodist Church, Brunswick Place, Newcastle upon Tyne, NE1 7BJ and is located in the very centre of Newcastle upon Tyne – easy peasy to reach by bus, metro and train.
