Polperro Fishermen's Choir

Polperro Fishermen's Choir have since their formation in 1923 provided the very best in traditional Cornish and modern choral music. The choir has appeared on radio and television, attracts audiences from many countries wherever they perform and has forged friendships with choirs from England, Wales and elsewhere in the world. The choir’s aims and objectives are as strong as ever and a great many charities have benefited from their devotion and love of singing. We have the active support of our President, the celebrity broadcaster and writer Richard Madeley, in raising money for good causes. Many members of the choir are also in the Polperro Wreckers, who sing in the lovely Old Millhouse Inn in Polperro at about 9.30pm on most Wednesday evenings. See the Wreckers page for details.

'At home' on the fish quay at Polperro

On selected Wednesday evenings throughout June, July & August each year the choir can be seen ‘at home’ on the fish quay in Polperro, entertaining locals and tourists alike. Describing the concerts as one of Cornwall's ten best 'free secrets' in her book Cornwall for Free, author Rachael Rowe says the singing "is a delight to hear as the sun goes down over the sea". Collections for charity at the free concerts this year went to Cornwall Air Ambulance and the Triangle Centre in Liskeard Hospital for chemotherapy patients and anyone affected by cancer, including carers, relatives and friends.

The choir and the Wreckers also perform in Looe and elsewhere, often to raise funds for the RNLI. Our famous Christmas Concert in Polperro Methodist Chapel on 23rd December attracts an audience from many parts of the country and overseas.
