About us

The Choir with No Name runs choirs for homeless and marginalised people. We’re a diverse bunch of folks; all genders, all colours, all ages - everyone is welcome.

We sing pop, rock, soul, gospel, reggae, musicals... you name it, we’ll give it a go... although we’ve yet to try any thrash metal or grime. We have four choirs: in Birmingham, Liverpool, London (run in partnership with Look Ahead) and Brighton (run in partnership with Brighton Housing Trust). Each choir gets together to rehearse every week with a decent dinner at the end of rehearsal, and we perform regularly at a whole load of different places, from local homeless hostels to the Royal Festival Hall and everywhere in between.

We were founded on the premise that singing makes you feel good; it distracts you from all the nonsense in life and helps you to build confidence, skills and genuine, long lasting friendships.

We aim to...

  1. have a brilliant time at rehearsals
  2. give performances that leave the audience gagging for more
  3. support each other in our dreams and ambitions, musical or otherwise.

We also deliver singing workshops for people at risk of homelessness in each of the cities where we work, motivated by a desire to share the joy of singing with as many isolated and marginalised people as possible (and hopefully recruit a few more choir members along the way!)
