TORCH are a dynamic choir who sing serious ROCK (yes – really!!). Everything from Deep Purple to Muse, Alice Cooper to Kasabian, and much more….
Founded in January 2010 under the musical direction of Kaytie Harding (Creative Director of Voice From The Coal Shed), TORCH are a diverse group – with members ranging in age from 15 to 74! We love what we do (singing rock songs with choral arrangements sounds awesome!) and love to share it with others. Over the past couple of years we have performed in local festivals, charity events, Choiroke 2010 in Sussex and 2012 in Surrey, and even auditioned for Britain’s Got Talent!
We meet weekly to release our inner Rock Gods and Goddesses and our rehearsals are never boring. There are no auditions, no requirement to read music and no experience is necessary. You can find us at Southwater Junior Academy, Worthing Road, Southwater, RH13 9JH, Tuesday nights during term time (7.30pm – 9.30pm).
Just turn up, join in and Rock On!
TORCH are a Voice From The Coal Shed Choir.

‘In our choirs we are blessed with every type of person regardless of their faith, ability, race, state of mind – anything that makes us different, makes us eligible (ie. everyone). Two of our members suffer from forms of epilepsy. Measures are in place to support our lovely people should they have a fit on or off stage. Please do not be surprised to see a person sitting on the stage not taking part. They are part of our support team. Should either member have a fit, they will be dealt with safely with the member being taken off stage if possible. We will not stop singing and we have made every effort to make sure our members have all the help and space they need. Do not be alarmed and rest assured we’ve got it covered!’
