Sutton Coldfield Tuneless Choir
As the roadmap out of lockdown progresses, we’ll be looking to get together in person subject to weather, suitable venue, government guidance and risk assessments!
For the moment however, we’ll continue online and will be back on Tuesday 20th April, singing every Tuesday from 8pm – 9.15 through until May 25th, by which time we should be able to meet in person! Do check back here for the latest info, or subscribe to our newsletter below to get the latest news straight to your inbox.
Sutton Coldfield Tuneless Choir launched in May 2016, and in normal times regularly has over 100 attendees at the United Reformed Church in the town centre. Since March 2020 we have been singing online via Zoom (a video conferencing medium) but if you and tech are not the best of friends, please don’t let that put you off as we are more than happy to do a run through ahead of joining a session and will give you any help you might need!
There’s no pressure to hit the right note or get it right, no judgement, no need to improve – just confidence-boosting fun and plenty of laughs if we get it wrong!We enjoy an extensive mix of popular songs from Abba and the Beatles to Coldplay and Elbow – and just about everything in between so always something for everyone.
Whilst singing online is a different experience to meeting in person, we still have heaps of fun and thoroughly enjoy singing great tunes badly, giving it loads of welly safe from the comfort of our own homes. And in these most difficult of times, it gives us lots of smiles, laughs, community and a feeling of ‘upliftedness’ – essential ingredients for coping with a pandemic.
We have ££ options to suit every budget, from free places if corona has effectedyour income, to £5 per household (yep, all the family can join in too!) or a £10 gifted place that covers the cost of a free place. Any excess free places are donated to Mind, our designated charity so a ‘win-win’ all round!
We did manage a couple of safe, socially distanced sessions whilst restrictions were eased in the autumn and will look to sing in person again just as soon as we are permitted – watch this space or sign up below for the latest news.

We hope to welcome you to the wonderful world of Tuneless singing soon!
