This is the home page for London's Transport Choir. We are an amateur workplace choir whose main aim is to bring together colleagues from across the transport industry to sing at events and concerts. Membership is open to anyone working in or with an interest in the transport industry in London. Singers include operational staff, new graduates, office workers and retirees from both National Rail and Transport for London, and their customers, and friends of choir members.
If you'd like to participate in our activities, there are details on our NEW MEMBERSpage. Rehearsal details are on ourACTIVITIES page. Latest news can be found on our MEMBERS' BLOG page Pat concerts and lots of pictures will appear on our RECENT EVENTS page, which is currently being updated.
We are now rehearsing for our two carol events - for TfL at St Martin-in-the-Fields on Wednesday 8 December and the Railstaff Carols on Thursday 16 December - more details to follow but see our Activities page for what is happening at the moment. The music tracks and rehearsal dates can be found there.
Our most recent event was the TfL Bus Awards for which we recorded five songs on Tuesday 21 September. We sang Bus Stop, A Transport of Delight, Stand by Me, Don't Stop Believing' and Proud Mary.
Here are some screenshots of the event.
That was our first event in which we sang together since last Christmas but we've been doing lots of singing on line meanwhile!
A few images from our 2020 Carol Service at St Martin-in-the-Fields. The complete service can be seen at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iLpNT5nrO2A.
