The Thamesdown Ladies Choir, also known affectionately as TLC are a Swindon based choir performing at local venues in the town and neighbouring towns and villages.

We regularly perform in churches, halls and other venues, and on occasions, we are invited by other sing further afield. In 2009 and 2012 we joined with other choirs to raise money for Cancer Research UK singing at the Royal Albert Hall in London. One of our key aims is to continue to raise much needed funds for local charities through concerts and other fund raising events.

We perform songs from musicals old and new, popular songs from the 50's to the present day, and sacred and secular standards from throughout the 20th century. Our repertoire changes each year, providing the choir with new challenges as well as re-discovering songs from our substantial library.

Traditionally, the choir holds a summer concert in June, currently at Immanuel Church in Upham Road, featuring not only the choir but a host of local musical talent. Every year a variety of guests are invited to appear with the choir. These have included local bands, dance groups, soloists and other choirs. We particularly enjoy showcasing young performers. Similarly, a Christmas concert is held each year at Bath Road Methodist Church in Old Town, Swindon to start off the yuletide celebrations.

TLC since 1975

The Thamesdown Ladies Choir was first established in 1975 by Mrs Patricia Langley-Poole. There were around 20 members then but now that has risen to some 55 ladies, including a few of the original members. To help the Choir mark its 25th anniversary as well as the Millennium, a Compact Disc was produced of the Choir’s favourite pieces at that time. Milestone Concerts are held every 5 years.
