 Venues

  

Most of our concerts are held at Eye Parish Church, regarded as one of the grandest in Suffolk, not only on the outside, but also with regards to the treasures within. The rood screen that the choir performs in front of is something to behold, being described as “easily the best 20th Century work in Suffolk”, and which has been the subject of an extensive restoration process. The Choir rehearses in Eye Primary School on Friday evenings adjacent to the Church, and holds its post concert entertaining for the audience, Friends, members of the Choir and Orchestra in the School Hall. We also perform in the lofty and italianate Eye Town Hall in our Christmas and Summer Concerts. There is plenty of parking for concerts as follows:

  • In the town car park at Cross Street (IP23 7AB) adjacent to the Queens Head pub in the middle of town, about 8 minutes walk from the Church
  • At the public car park at Buckshorne Lane off Church Street (IP23 7AZ), about 3 minutes walk from the Church
  • On street parking with residents in Church Street

For concerts at the Town Hall, the Cross Street car park would be the nearest.

Tickets are presently sold at Eye Pharmacy, and also directly from our Ticket Manager, a choir member, from about a month before a concert. Tickets are normally available for purchase on the door too, although it is advisable to check in advance for availability. It is also possible to buy tickets for our current concert direct through our Paypal button on the relevant concert page from about 6 weeks prior to the concert date (for Paypal registered users) which can be either posted to the buyer or held at the door on the evening of the concert. Please note that multiple tickets are purchased on the second page of Paypal and not on the initial screen. Please enter any specific requirements you may have for seating in the box provided, along with your email address for a confirmation from the Ticket Manager. Or email her direct at Ticket Manager.

We rehearse each Friday during the school term from September until May at Eye Primary School next to the church between 7.45 pm. and 9.45 pm, with a sociable coffee in the middle, and refreshments at the pub afterwards. Singing on a Friday night sets us up for the weekend nicely.
