This group started in January 1999. It’s named after the Three Choirs Festival, because most of our members live in Worcestershire, Herefordshire and Gloucestershire. However, any SI members who can get to meetings are welcome to join.
The Three Choirs Group runs a discussion forum that is open to all members of the Society.
For further information, please contact the Three Choirs group coordinator, Pam Scholefield
