About

Louth Choral Society presents a wide variety of choral music from the 16th Century right through to the present day.  We aim to achieve high standards of performance and our concerts are usually presented along with professional musicians and soloists.

Our home venue is the magnificent Church of St James in Louth, but in recent years we have also been taking our music to other towns around Lincolnshire, and neighbouring counties.

This is a successful choir with a thriving membership, but we are always on the lookout for new voices. Previous choral experience is not essential, but enthusiasm and commitment are!

How Louth Choral Society Began

According to its archives, for a long time it was believed that Louth Choral Society was established in 1866.  In 2013 however, the Society’s attention was brought to the concert advertisement below.  Printed on silk, the advertisement clearly states, ‘Louth Choral Society ... The First Public Concert of the above society will take place on Monday 12th March 1838’.  And, although the Society holds no formal records from that time, in several editions of the Lincoln, Rutland and Stamford Mercury of 1836, there are reports relating to Louth Choral Society, including an 'annual meeting'.
