Singing Network UK

Singing Network UK is a free forum, bringing together organisations with an interest in singing to meet two to three times a year, now exclusively on Zoom. There are usually two or more speakers on relevant topics per meeting, plus an opportunity for members to raise any issues of interest to others and/or for collaboration. For instance, the network worked closely together over campaigning during Covid.
