Hello and welcome!

The Happy Place Choir is a vibrant, welcoming and friendly community choir based in Old Town in Eastbourne. We sing all types of rock, pop, gospel and world songs, from melancholic songs that make your heart soar to toe tapping tunes with an irresistible beat. The choir started in February 2016 and is still going strong.

The Happy Place Choir is one big family and everyone is welcome. It's a place for singing, smiling and living in the moment. Our choir is made up of men and women of all ages - it really is open to anyone who loves to sing!

Formerly known as the Eden Blue Choir, the choir relaunched in 2021 under a new name - The Happy Place Choir. We felt that the name perfectly described what the choir means to its members. It really is our 'happy place'.
