Raised Voices is a political choir based in North London.
We sing for peace, justice and the environment, against militarism, capitalism, racism and sexism.
We also sing to raise money for various campaigns, at political events and on demonstrations, often with other choirs, as well as at festivals and at parties.
See the About Us page to find out more about the choir.
Raised Voices welcomes singers of all abilities.
New members are always welcome!
Raised Voices meets on Thursday evenings 7.30-9.30pm at the Doreen Bazell Community Centre in Chenies Place (off Pancras Road), London NW1 1UG.

Many of you who knew Cynthia Cockburn will have heard the sad news that Cynthia died on 12th September 2019. She was a very long-term member of Raised Voices and was instrumental in setting up Campaign Choirs Network. She contributed a huge amount to Raised Voices, including the words of more than 20 songs. We are missing her very much. She was a strong feminist and radical thinker, campaigner, writer, photographer, with a great interest in birds and nature, and a warm friend to so many people.
You can find a tribute site on the Campaign Choirs website, and an obituary in the Guardian.
Raised Voices is currently planning a memorial to take place on 7th March 2020. If you are a past member of Raised Voices, and haven’t yet heard from Thea, please email us at as some contact details we have are out of date.
On 4th January, Raised Voices sang at Celebrating Cynthia, an event to celebrate the life of Cynthia Cockburn, held at Westminster Friends Meeting House. Friends and family gathered to pay tribute in a moving programme which combined personal memories of Cynthia, readings from her books and songs with lyrics written by Cynthia. The event concluded with a gathering at the nearby Edith Cavell memorial, where attendees carried banners made by Cynthia. Cynthia was a tireless peace activist, feminist writer, photographer and longtime member of Raised Voices, who contributed powerful lyrics to many of our songs.
