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.
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

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.
