InSpire Daytime Voices Returns...

Our community choir InSpire Daytime Voices started again this September!

The last 18 months have been challenging, but the pandemic proved how music brings people together in the most amazing ways.

Embracing technology, our fab Musical Director Jane (and husband Chris) spent many, many hours keeping spirits up and members in good voice with weekly YouTube rehearsals, a socially distanced 'Virtual Carol Concert', and Chairman Clare even opened her garden for outdoor rehearsals once we were allowed to gather in person again. Some days it was literally a case of "Singin' In The Rain" (with our amazing accompanist Corrine sheltered in the summerhouse), but thankfully we have been able to return to our more conventional rehearsal venue, The Spire and are pleased to be welcoming new members.


We have the following Covid-19 policies in place;

  • Please bring a face mask and wear when in communal areas of The Spire building,

  • Please take a rapid Lateral Flow Test on the day of rehearsal before attending for the safety of all.

  • Rehearsals are slightly shorter than usual, running from 10:30-11:45 am as we aren't yet able to have our usual tea break.

Established as Parkstone Vocal and Instrumental Society in 1919, P&P’s Musical Theatre Society has grown

to become one of the best known 

musical theatre companies in the

Bournemouth and Poole area.


They have performed a variety of shows from Oliver, to 42nd Street, Sweeney Todd, to Jesus Christ Superstar as well

as their famous Autumn Concerts & smaller cabaret performances

across the region.


The Players was set up in 2005 for members who enjoy performing (and audiences who enjoy watching) straight plays.

They have had huge success with

 plays such as Rebecca, Steel Magnolias and A Bunch of Amateurs as well as our regular Summer Cocktails and Evening of One Act Plays, and even performing a show penned by one of their own members; Changing Fortunes.


P&P’s resident choir The Singers was founded in 1998, originally for members of the Musicals section who wanted to sing but not to dance.

They have since become well-renowned for their precision, close harmonies and eclectic programmes.

Under the musical direction of Jane McDouall, The Singers perform at a variety of venues and events across Dorset.

"When it comes to song and dance spectaculars there is no-one to beat this company... The staging, costumes and performance

really were as good as it gets..."

— Linda Kirkman, Bournemouth Echo
