Contact Details

TCS likes to keep in touch with all its members. If you change any of your contact details, or know that emails are not arriving, please let Annie know.

Music Library

We have a lot of printed music and a few books. These are available for members to borrow for a small contribution to Society funds; fancy getting together your own a cappella group? The list of music is here.


Please click here to see the Attendance Policy for rehearsals. We have complied with a requirement from the Abbey Insurers to put Protection Policies in place – these may be found here for Children and Adults at risk.

The Society updated it’s Rules for Members in September 2015 and adopted a Data Protection and Retention policy in 2018.

Amazon Smile

Good news! If you spend money on Amazon, you can generate cash for the Society without spending a penny (so to speak). Do a google search for Amazon Smile, then search/select Tewkesbury Choral Society as your charity of choice. Thereafter, do your Amazon shopping via the Smile website and they give us 0.5% of everything you spend. And we can’t tell who you are, or what you spent your money on. Simples!
