Cats Protection

Basildon, Brentwood & District Cats Protection

We are the local branch of the national charity of Cats Protection, ours aims are to find loving homes for cats & kittens, to encourage neutering of all cats and to provide information to the public.

All the cats we help are fostered in our volunteers homes until we can find them loving homes of their own, all the cats we take in are treated for fleas/worms and all adult cats are neutered, we fundraise by holding auctions, having stalls at local events, quiz nights, bowling nights etc.. If you need help or would like to help please contact our Cat Helpline.

Howard Wallace Chorale

The Howard Wallace Chorale was formed in 1980 with the purpose of performing high quality music from as wide a range as possible, in a style not offered by existing excellent choral societies and opera groups. A range of lighter popular music is sung in the choral tradition; this has had an immediate and lasting appeal, and there is now a regular attendance at performances of the Chorale's middle of the road repertoire - music sacred and secular, popular classics, folk-songs, show music, and especially the arrangements created by Howard Wallace, the founder and musical director.

The choir practices on Mondays at 7-45pm sharp at Shenfield School, Oliver Road, Shenfield are lively and robust, requiring application, concentration, and attention to detail in attaining a high standard of performance. They are also very enjoyable as well as preparing us all to participate in the production of moving, inspirational and thrilling music from a very varied repertoire.

Shenfield Operatic Society

The Shenfield Operatic Society are always looking for new members, young, old, male or female to join them on stage. If you have always been interested in performing with a friendly society, then you should drop them a line!

You may not have the inclination to perform on stage, but they also need financial and practical help as well as good
performers. By contributing a modest annual subscription and perhaps giving a little of your time, you can help them to maintain this high standard of production. There are benefits too! You will be invited to join them for social events, and will receive advance notification of all performances and ticket details. So, apply now to by visiting either their Registration page or by contacting our Membership Secretary, Hannah Matthews-Jones.

Those wishing to perform on stage will need to pass an informal audition.
