Saffron Walden Community Choir

Make new friends, find a new hobby & be part of a real community when you sing with our Saffron Walden choir. Help us raise £1 million for charity while singing your heart out! We have lots of unique events to raise money for charity where you can sing on stage, make viral videos, put a wig on, dress in costumes and have fun. No audition needed!

"Everyone is really friendly the choirmaster is amazing and learning to sing brilliant songs - best bit will be fundraising for some excellent causes"

- Denise Lagdon


No previous musical experience needed

If you’ve never sung before or played any instruments, don’t worry! We can teach you how to sing with our professional, trained musicians. We’ll make sure you improve your singing while enjoying yourself every week.


We know it can be scary to sing in front of people so that’s why we’ll never make you sing on your own. You’ll always sing in groups, with friendly people supporting you. 

Escape your day-to-day

With increasing loneliness and anxiety, you can find a safe space to be yourself & connect with others at our choir. Get support from like-minded people who genuinely care about you and find yourself again.

"Great collaboration of like-minded people who enjoy singing and it’s a place to have fun forget your troubles and share the joy of music - but in particular the choir host who is very talented and engaging and super funny!"

- Christine Clarke

About the Saffron Walden choir group

The Saffron Walden Choir is a new group that opened in September '23. We have an incredibly talented and experienced Choir Leader who has built a friendly and welcoming group that have already raised hundreds of pounds for charity from busking and performing.


"I’d recommend everything... sharing our love of music with each other, making new friends and feeling part of something rather special. Raising money is always a great thing to do, too"

A message from Andrew Small, 
Founder and Director of Buskerteers Choir

Hello and thank you for your interest in Buskerteers Choir. I founded the organisation in January 2020 with the goal of combining my love of choirs and community spirit with a personal mission to fundraise £1m for charity.


We've now got 20 choirs open with over 1000 people involved and we've raised over £100,000 for charity in just three years. 


I'm very proud and excited to open up a brand new choir in Saffron Walden. Your choir sessions will be led by a close personal friend of mine, who happens to be one of the most talented musicians I know. 


I look forward to welcoming you on to this crazy journey where we learn songs in three-part harmony, practice them until they sound great and then use them to help others by raising money and awareness for charitable causes. 


Our latest project raised over £8,000 for Comic Relief, went viral on TikTok and ended up on BBC News. This is what being a Buskerteer is all about! You can watch the video below. 


I look forward to you joining us on this exciting and rewarding journey.

Andrew Small

Founder and Director of Buskerteers Choir
