Love to sing? Want to sing? Come and join us at my Peckham choir, Peckham Rye Sings!
Peckham Rye Sings is a fun and friendly community choir based in Peckham and led by local choir leader Xenia Davis.
We meet on Monday evenings from 7.30-9pm at the Copleston Centre, and we sing beautiful a cappella folk, gospel and world music songs in 3 and 4 part harmony. All songs are taught by ear.
We were founded in June 2015 and we’ve grown to around 45 members.
Looking for a Peckham choir? Everyone is welcome to come and sing with Peckham Rye Sings, whether your singing is limited to the shower or you belt out ballads on the London Overground. There is no need to read music, and you don’t need to audition.
“We start the week with a smile rather than a groan knowing that Monday has such a treat at the end of it.”

When do you meet? Monday evenings during term time, from 7.30 – 9.00pm.
Where do you meet? Copleston Centre, Copleston Road, Peckham SE15 4AN
How much does it cost? The first session is free! After that it’s £7.75 waged/ £5.75 concessions per week. If £5.75 ever feels out of range, come along anyway and pay what you can, or don’t pay. Money should never be a reason for not singing!
I really want to come but I don’t know if I can commit to every week. Is that ok? Come along every week, or just come once or twice a term, whatever works for you. No need to commit to every week – we get that people have busy schedules!
Do you perform? Yes we do. We usually do 1-2 performances per term. We’ve sung at the Southbank Centre, at local community Wassailing events, at the launch event of Peckham Citizens, at local community festivals, Sing For Water, and we’ve flash mobbed the London Overground and the Tate Modern. Performing is totally optional though, it’s fun, but not everyone’s cup of tea, so if you’re not into performing, that’s totally fine.

How do I join? Just come along on a Monday evening at 7.30. We don’t have auditions, and there are no limits to how many people can join per part.
Questions? Get in touch or just turn up on a Monday night!
Hang on. Did you say you did a flash mob? Yup, we did. Here’s a video of it. Enjoy.
