Travelling to Wells

Return coach travel from Wellington (Longforth Road) and Taunton (Hankridge) is available for £8 per person.

Coach tickets are sold on a first come, first served basis. We recommend you book coach travel when booking singing places.

How to get involved

Members of Somerset Voices pay a small subscription (£12 per head) to help cover the costs of rehearsals and music leading up to the big day.

A small number of bursaries are available for singers aged 18-35 to allow them to take part in Sing for Somerset without charge.

We ask that singers bring a copy of 100 Carols for Choirs. These are often available secondhand on Amazon.co.uk for as little as £9. Alternatively please bring Carols for Choirs 1 (Green) and 2 (Orange) and make a note on the booking form, and the additional music will be provided.

Booking details

Preferred payment methods are by bank transfer (see booking form for details) or cash on the day.
