Café Choir | Howden

Café Choir in Howden – a fun, relaxed, social sing for everyone!

Café Choir in Howden is a fun, relaxed, weekly social choir pop-up for anyone and everyone. No experience or singing ability needed, no solos, no awkwardness, no worries. Even if you feel you can’t sing or don’t like the sound of your own voice (who does?!), you’re TOTALLY welcome.

Café Choir is a new, weekly morning meetup from So Choir!. Since 2016, So Choir! (SOcial Choir) have been bringing people together to sing top songs, with a side order of live music, in awesome harmony.

We’ve made a ton of amazing friends, been on the telly, recorded videos for YouTube, received glowing accolades from the bands and artists who’s songs we’ve covered and even ended up on tour!


Yep, as So Choir! we normally do drinks at the bar on an evening. As Café Choir, you can enjoy freshly ground coffee, Yorkshire Tea (what else?!) and a choice of soft drinks.
