The Fishpond Choir

It's all about having fun and making music.


The Fishpond Choir, with its eclectic repertoire of world music, is unique. Named after the Fishpond pub in Matlock Bath, the choir was formed in 2001 as a mixed-voice, open-access community choir. Nobody knows if it was the country’s first pub choir, but founder members like to think so.

Musical Director: Claire De la Haye
