Broom Leys Choral Society (BLCS)  is a friendly, mixed voice (SATB), non-audition choir performing a large repertoire ranging from Lloyd-Webber and Gershwin to Rutter, Verdi, Mozart, Handel and other classical composers.

The society meets weekly on Tuesday evenings, from 7.00pm to 9.00pm, at Whitwick Methodist Church, Hall Lane, Whitwick, Leicestershire. See the map for location details.




Latest site update:  July 3rd 2018

Our first concert of 2018 was our inaptly named ‘Spring Concert’ at Whitwick Methodist Church. See the box, below.


However, our  2018 Summer Concert on Saturday 30th June at Ibstock Community College where we were joined by the Charnwood Symphonic Wind Orchestra really lived up to its name on a glorious Summer evening.


This Summer Concert, presented in a café style format, and was again a sell-out, reflecting the popularity of the setting and the music from both choir and guests!

Spring Concert - March 2018

OH! WHAT A NIGHT - in more ways than one.

In what was possibly one of the worst nights of the winter in Whitwick, with a dire forecast, it was decided to go ahead with our ‘SPRING’ concert on Saturday 17th March. In spite of the weather the choir all turned up and the concert was great - really appreciated by the audience who had braved the elements to attend.

Even with a blizzard raging outside, most people stayed on to enjoy hot drinks and refreshments after the concert.

Well done to choir and audience alike.
