Sheffield Socialist Choir (SCC) invite you to join us to learn Songs of Protest, and sing in harmony. SCC have been singing for a fairer world for 30 years – since the spring of 1988. Come and learn songs to support the causes you care about, come and sing with us.

Singers and non-singers welcome! We invite you to share our vision of freedom, peace and justice around the world; a society which cares about climate change and the natural environment, fair wages and work conditions, asylum seekers, refugees, the NHS, the welfare state, public services and freedom for Palestine.

We are not affiliated to any political party, but sing in support of campaigns which are in harmony with our vision. Our choir leader, Janet Wood, is an experienced teacher as well as accomplished songwriter and performer.

Supporting Sheffield City of Sanctuary – a movement to build a culture of welcome and hospitality for refugees and asylum seekers.
