I love choirs, and I'm the musical director of three fabulous groups of singers: Shildon Institute Singers, Manfield Warblers and Catterick Military WAGS Choir. I also lead various pop-up choirs, including Singin' in the BATH at Bishop Auckland Town Hall, and with schools and community groups.

Catterick Military WAGS Choir meet on Thursdays 6.00-7.30 at the Garrison Church. If you are a servicewoman, veteran, or have an affiliation with the military through your job or your family/partner, and you love to sing, please visit the website to get in touch and find out more.

Shildon Institute Singers

Shildon Institute Singers meet on Fridays 6.00-7.00 at the fantastic Shildon Railway Institute. It's a gorgeous old building with a great history and a very nice bar called 'the Ginstitute!'


This choir is a great place for new and experienced singers who want a fun and relaxed sing. We like musicals, rock, pop and soul.


This friendly group is run on a 'pay as you feel you can' basis. There is a more information about the choir, the institute and what to expect on this helpful FAQs page.  We look forward to seeing you there!

Manfield Warblers

Manfield Warblers is the result of an inspired conversation between some friends in our village pub, The Crown Inn.


When they realised that a singing coach had moved into their village, they asked me to help them start a fun and friendly choir that was open to all.

We sing in Manfield Village Hall (pictured here) on Tuesdays 8.00pm-9.00pm.

You don't have to live in Manfield to sing with us - we have members from nearby Darlington, and from across Teesdale and North Yorkshire.

The village hall is modern and accessible with plenty of parking, and is conveniently located next to The Crown Inn

We're called the warblers because during lockdown we started singing outdoors, under a willow tree.

Like our sister choir Shildon Institue Singers, we're open to all and you don't need to read music to join in. We're just here for the fun of it, and we'd love you to come and join us!

Manfield Warblers is £5.00 per session. Please let me know by email if you are planning on coming along so I can send you the songwords for the coming week.

I'm a singing coach, so in my choirs we always do fun a warm up and a warm down to help keep your voice healthy and strong.


We use simple backing tracks, and do some unaccompanied singing too. This means that we can be really flexible about the keys we sing in and the harmonies we do.

If you'd like to find out more about coming along to one of my choirs, please get in touch and I'll be happy to help you.
