Welcome to the Home of the Bridgewater Singers

Under the temporary musical direction of Catherine Ardern and John Stott, and supported by our accompanist, Catherine Gellert, the Bridgewater Singers are a local 20 voice choir based in Stockton Heath, but our membership is drawn from a wider area including Appleton, Thelwall, Grappenhall and Lymm and we are happy to travel further afield to perform.

Our repertoire includes classical, modern, folk, pop, early and sacred music as well as songs from musicals and films, a capella and barbershop. If you need a choir for your wedding or other special event please contact bridgewatersingers.info@gmail.com  We also welcome applications from singers interested in joining us in the event of a vacancy: we currently require tenor and bass voices.
