Local UK Groups

Covid 19 update: Our learning groups have now moved back from meeting online to  holding small gatherings of Companions with the necessary risk assessments in place and according to the most current government guidelines. 

We have Companion Voices learning groups around the UK in Brighton, Hertfordshire, Midlands, West Yorkshire and Bristol. Please scroll down this page to view the next practice dates for the local groups and contact information for them.

Our regular monthly online ‘Companions’ Café’ for Companions from any group and anyone else who’d like to find out more about us is taking a break at the moment. Please do let us know through the general contact page if you’d be interested in joining us so we can let you know when we’re restarting.

Please note, the learning groups are closed groups so venues/online joining details and costs are given on enquiry.

Please Contact Us if you’d like to find out more about visiting or joining Companion Voices as a singer or in some other capacity to support our work.
