A Wimbledon choir won't be singing any of its bigger songs in town until a "world class concert hall" has been built.

The Wimbledon Choral Society has decided to perform its larger scale works at Cadogan Hall, Chelsea, following the partial demolition of Wimbledon Town Hall.

The decision follows two sell out concerts at the Cadogan Hall in the past 12 months, something choir chairwoman Sarah Hendry said could not be ignored.

“Unfortunately for the time being we are not able to perform these major works in Wimbledon," she said.

"Since the council demolished the town hall, there simply isn’t anywhere big enough.

"After trying out a number of different venues we have decided to concentrate on Cadogan Hall.

"It’s a lovely venue and very accessible for Wimbledon residents.”

The hope for the choir is that a new 1250-seat "state-of-the-art auditorium" will be built in Wimbledon and they can soon return to town.

But until then, director of music for WCS, Neil Ferris, said Chelsea will have to do.

“Cadogan Hall is a wonderful venue for us - it's Byzantine revival architecture is inspiring and the acoustics ideal for a concert of this scale," he said.

"We love performing there for the sense of occasion; the audience feels close and we love the atmosphere that the building creates.”
