The "Funk Wire" is a choir for everyone who enjoys a good sing – even if they can't. So, if you were ever told you were ‘tone deaf’ or thrown out of a school choir – then come and join us. We sing like no one is listening, for the pure enjoyment of it. No musical ability is required!

We meet every fortnight on Thursday afternoons in the Village Hall in Arncliffe from 2pm to 4pm. Forthcoming dates are:

  • 13th June
  • 27th June
  • 11th July
  • 25th July - Last choir before summer break and SUMMER LUNCH


  • Thursday 26th September resume choir after the summer break.

For your Diary - Christmas Singalong Friday 13th December (evening with time to be decided).

JUNE 2019 GREAT NEWS - The Funk Wire has just been awarded a generous grant by the Yorkshire Dales Millenium Trust through the Roger Stott Community Grants Programme. This generous grant has bought a new iPad which the choir can use to store the music backing tracks and also a top of the range projector. Our thanks go to the YDMT Roger Stott Community grant for their support.
