Yeovilton Military Wives Choir

The ChoirThe Choir

The Yeovilton Military Wives Choir formed in September 2012 as a result of the outstanding success of the original Military Wives Choirs from Chivenor and Plymouth, made famous through the BBC TV programme with Gareth Malone.  The Yeovilton Military Wives Choir now has over 50 members who meet weekly in Ilchester to have fun, rehearse together and provide mutual support as they deal with the challenges of Service life. 

As one of nearly 80 Military Wives Choirs that have now been established across the UK and abroad, the Yeovilton Military Wives Choir is part of the Military Wives Choirs Foundation.

The Military Wives Choirs Foundation - Supporting the women who support our troops

Military Wives FoundationMilitary Wives Foundation

The Foundation has set up a network of choirs that reaches across the whole military community. It has been established to provide support, guidance and funding for individual choirs, but first and foremost to bring women closer together through singing.

Following the phenomenal success of 'Wherever You Are', which raised more than half a million pounds for military charities, those involved set out to create a wider network that could support wives, partners and women serving in the forces, and would leave a lasting legacy. In particular, the women from the first choirs wanted to share the enjoyment and pride that they had already experienced through their own choirs. The Military Wives Choirs Foundation has enabled them to do just this.

Through its growing network, the Foundation is building something that brightens lives, strengthens military communities and enables hundreds of women to experience the enjoyment and friendship that comes from being part of a Military Wives Choir. The Foundation is now a registered subsidiary of SSAFA.

Registered Charity Number 1148302. Established 2012.
