Social Activities

Sangstream is a very sociable group.  Some of the extra things we get up to include:


  • Visiting the pub after rehearsals on Thursday nights – currently we head to the Black Ivy at Bruntsfield Links, very near our new rehearsal space at James Gillespie’s High School.
  • Once a month, choir members meet together for an informal song session in the Captains Bar in Edinburgh – usually the 3rd Saturday in the month (but check the diary for occasional changes).
  • We often have social events – the latest being our 20th Anniversary Ceilidh in November 2017 and our annual (after the) New Year party .
  • At least once a year we go away for the weekend to a hostel for some singing and playing / walking / cooking / eating / dancing / acting / treasure hunts / etc. It’s a really great way to get to know other people in the choir better.  This year it’s Pitlochry.
  • Occasionally we go further away to perform, e.g. at folk festivals..  In 2011 we were in Denmark for a return exchange visit with the Danish choir Naested Koret and in 2013 we were in Ullapool.
  • Small groups occasionally meet up with each other to sing and play instruments together.
  • Some of us meet up to go to concerts / walking / kayaking / etc.
  • A group of Sangstream members stitched one of the panels for the Great Tapestry of Scotland.
  • …and lots, lots more…!
