The Parliament Choir: Harmony in Westminster

parliament has a choir?


The Parliament Choir welcomes as a member anyone who works at the UK Parliament - Members, their staff, and parliamentary officials. We rehearse on Monday evenings, when the Houses of Parliament are sitting, usually in the Chapel of St Mary Undercroft off Westminster Hall. We are currently rehearsing in St Margaret's Westminster.
