To be eligible to join NTC you need to be involved in regular teaching in a UK school, e.g. classroom teacher, TA, senior leader, trainee teacher, peripatetic music teacher. This can be at any key stage from EYFS to KS5, in any type of educational setting.

We are sorry, but the choir is not open to those not teaching regularly (e.g. retired teachers), or to those from Higher Education settings.

Join NTC


It's easy to sign up to sing with us. There are 2 options available:-


One-off membership (£89 per rehearsal weekend + gig/s)




Annual membership - 3 rehearsal weekends + gigs

(3 instalments of £72, or a lump sum of £216)


Fees include Saturday dinner and Sunday lunch

Accommodation not included



Step 1 - register

Complete this registration form:


(NB existing NTC members do not need to complete)


Step 2 - pay

1. Annual membership in full (£216):



2. Annual membership - instalment 1 (£72):



3. One off membership - (£89):




Please note that fees are non-refundable, and those signing up to annual membership in instalments are committed to paying all 3 instalments, based on published rehearsal weekend dates (we'll collect instalments around 2 months before each weekend). We are not a commercial outfit - member fees are purely to cover the costs of the rehearsal weekends. Members will not be charged for gigs, as these are subject to change.

The uncertainty with the pandemic means we haven’t finalised plans for 2021/22 as yet, however our pencilled dates are:


23/24 October 2021 – West Midlands tbc

19/20 February 2022 – London tbc

29-31 July 2022 – Snape Maltings, Suffolk (annual summer residency)

'I will always treasure the weekends and performances with NTC in my memories - one of the best things I have EVER achieved!'
