Welcome to Bexhill Choral Society!
We are a friendly, enthusiastic, non-audition choral society in Bexhill-on-Sea, East Sussex.
We currently have over 50 members and warmly welcome new singers. Under our Director of Music, Kenneth Roberts, we perform 3 concerts during the year, featuring a wide range of choral music.
We also organise social events and have a thriving support group of Friends.
Rehearsals – Because of the current health situation, the Society is unable to hold in-person rehearsals until further notice. Weekly Zoom rehearsals have been taking place since June, and after the Christmas break will start again on January 13th.
As soon as it is possible and considered advisable, we hope to start in-person rehearsals again, with appropriate precautions in place. Members will be kept informed.

To listen to a small selection of Christmas music and carols from our Christmas 2019 concert follow the link https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6ovx3bvqJi8 or search for Bexhill Choral Christmas on YouTube. The concert was accompanied by the Cinque Ports Brass and this selection includes the sparkling ‘Caribbean Christmas’, conductor Kenneth Robert’s rearrangement of familiar carols for brass.
Even Scrooge would have warmed to Christmas with this presentation. It was different and fun. Conductor Ken Roberts put together a splendidly varied programme…a delightful entertaining ‘Christmas evening” Lark Reviews, December 2019
Our May 2020 Great Choral Classics concert has been rescheduled to Saturday, 8 May 2021, at the De La Warr Pavilion. Tickets previously purchased will still be valid for the new date, with no exchange necessary. For more information on tickets please see www.dlwp.com/event/bexhill-choral-society/
For many years, we have been honoured to have Brian Kentfield, who sadly passed away on 27 March 2020, as our President. Brian has been a hugely respected and very popular community ‘champion’ in so many different roles and BCS has always had his enthusiastic interest and support. He and his wife Susan attended all our concerts and loved meeting both choir and audience. His dedication to and appreciation of our work with our Director of Music, Kenneth Roberts, was very evident on these occasions.
The Society is affiliated to ‘Making Music’ (formerly the National Federation of Music Societies) and is a registered charity (number 285555).
