The Centenary Choir is based in Malvern, Worcestershire and started in 2014 as an informal group called the Trench Choir, marking the centenary of World War I by researching and singing songs from the war. No special musical knowledge or ability were required, and this has attracted a number of members who would otherwise never have opportunity to sing. The Trench Choir had a regular membership around twenty people and proved popular as shown by the 50 public events and performances to 2018. As the end of the Centenary approached the Choir decided to continue with its mission of approaching history through song and music and to rename itself as the Centenary Choir. We were successful in obtaining a Heritage Lottery Grant to help us carry out research and to meet running costs and also gratefully acknowledge financial help from the Upton Blues Charity to pay the costs of professional singing tuition. Malvern Town Council also gave us a grant in 2017 towards running costs and a further grant in 2019 to help us travel abroad in 2020 to sing at the Malvern Gate in Landrecies, France, a town supported by Malvern in the post-World war one period.
