Termly Payments

It is easiest for us if you use online banking - don't forget to use your initial and surname as a reference and also please let Ann Brewer know you have paid.


Our bank account details are as follows

Account Name             Forest Row Choral Society   (HSBC East Grinstead)

Sort Code                      40 20 09                   Account Number   51259199

Please pay promptly at the beginning of each term - thank you.


If you don't use online banking, then a cheque made out to FRCS should be given to Ann Brewer at a rehearsal as early in the term as possible.


As of September 2016 the termly amount is £65.  Please help us by completing a Gift Aid form if you are a tax payer - see below.


We suggest you bookmark the following resources in your brower to help you with practice - each site is different, but between them you will find most major choral works that we are likely to sing.


Spring Term 2020

Sadly, our concert is cancelled - but we will continue to rehearse under the guidance of Sylvia Trench until the end of term.


The plan is to sing the Dvorak next Spring - under Tom's baton



Term Dates  


Fundamentally our rehearsals always run within the school terms which can be found by clicking the link here:   school terms


SOMETIMES we break during half-terms - but this is confirmed from term to term at the weekly rehearsals.
