Covid-19 Update


With great regret and in line with government requirements we have cancelled the summer term rehearsals, June concert and choir members' garden party. Assuming the national picture has sufficiently improved, we hope to reconvene in September. A further update will be published on this website as soon as there is any change in this position.




Our choir is based in Fakenham - a living, working, energetic market town in North Norfolk. We welcome anyone over the age of 16 who loves to sing. Our aim is to bring the pleasure of live, large-scale choral music-making to a wide public. And, of course, to have a wonderful time.

The choir has about 100 members from the town and surrounding villages and we meet to rehearse every Tuesday evening, from September to June, at the Salvation Army Hall, Oak Street, Fakenham, from 7.30pm to 9.15pm.

We perform a minimum of three concerts a year, usually at Fakenham Parish Church, but we have also sung at churches in Blakeney, Cley, Wells-next-the-Sea and King's Lynn. Our repertoire embraces both sacred and secular music, and we have performed with a succession of distinguished soloists and orchestras.

FCS was founded in 1973 and today is led with great enthusiasm, expertise and flair by musical director Mark Jones.

Recent concert highlights have included Orff's Carmina Burana, Will Todd's Mass in Blue, Mozart's Requiem, Britten's Saint Nicolas and Mendelssohn's Elijah.

We have successfully attracted funding from the National Lottery, from our own active association of Friends and from a network of corporate sponsors pleased to be associated with a successful local enterprise.

The Tuesday evening rehearsals are challenging, invigorating, informative and, most of all, great fun. Mark is brilliantly assisted by the choir's accompanist Jim Laird.

We pride ourselves on providing a warm welcome to all new members so, if you think you would like to join the choir, do come along and give us a try. Please contact Carol Jennings, FCS Membership Secretary, on 01328 738482 or 07899 771366, or contact us via this website.
