St John the Divine

There is parking available behind the church hall or you can park on the street outside. The 412 bus stops almost outside the church hall whether you are coming from Croydon or Purley or the 64, 433 and 359 buses also stop not far away.

Coombe Wood School

There is parking available on site (accessed from Coombe Road). The car park has an automatic vehicle registration recognition system. Free car parking is available on site but you MUST register your vehicle registration at reception (inside the building) to qualify.

The car park is operated by an external car parking company and fines will be issued to those who do not register their vehicle at reception.

Folio Active (Coombe Wood School) and Songsations cannot be held responsible for any fines issued and car parking is at owner’s risk.   

Lloyd Park tram stop is also a short walk from Coombe Wood School. Trams come from Croydon and New Addington.

Oxted Community Hall

There is some parking available at the hall.

We sing mostly musical theatre with the odd film theme thrown in for good measure and we welcome anyone female aged 18 and over. All abilities are encouraged to join. You do not have to audition to join!

We try to perform throughout the year, however, you are under no obligation to join in these performances. If you just want to come and sing in the rehearsals that is absolutely fine.

Please get in touch for information about payment.

If you have any questions or would like to register your interest in joining please feel free to email Claire at songsations@outlook.com

When you join us you will gain access to our Members Page. Here you will find guide tracks to the songs we are working on. There will be a full guide track and guide tracks for each part.

She has performed in shows such as The Phantom of the Opera, Disney’s Beauty and the Beast, The Witches of Eastwick and Oliver! to name a few.
