Quirky Choir

Quirky Choir prides itself on being a very different kind of choir. It has a distinct identity and pushes the boundaries of what a choir should be.

Nobody needs to audition to join, and every week Doncaster residents of all ages and walks of life come together to raise the roof of The Point.

The choir sings an eclectic repertoire – songs from South Africa to Hawaii, from rock and roll to Rhianna. Come and sing to improve your wellbeing and make new friends in this welcoming and sociable group.

No booking is needed – please just turn up. Term time only.

Sing It Out! Mama

Sing it out! Mama is the project which is very close to our hearts. As a mum, we all know that having a child is a big change and often big changes are the ones that cause stress, anxiety and depression. As mums ourselves we want to support other mums.

Unlike many other baby groups which are purely aimed at entertaining baby or baby’s development Sing it out! Mama is very much about YOU!
Singing can help you in times of stress and anxiety where are you might feel isolated and alone when you are struggling with your baby.
It is a scientifically proven fact that singing lowers cortisol levels which are linked to stress. It boosts endorphins and dopamine levels giving us a happy feeling.
Each session will have a chat and loads of singing both for you and songs to sing with your baby (including playful activities). It doesn’t matter if you have never sung before. The songs have been carefully chosen so that you can sing them easily and remember them.

You don’t have to hide your feelings inside. Come and share it with us and let’s sing it out together!
You can find our sessions on YouTube https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCmFcunHcxr95F8B3yrZ7S2w
