The first date of the British Methodist Youth Choir's normal four concert schedule of 2010 has been confirmed to be at Yarm Methodist Church on the 24th April 2010.

Yarm Methodist Church is the oldest Octagonal church in current use in Methodism. Originally built as a single storey in 1763, under the leadership of a prominent local businessman, George Merryweather, and through the encouragement of John Wesley, who was a frequent visitor and preacher at Yarm.

The church was extended in 1815 with a second storey added with a gallery, a School Hall in 1892, the Organ Loft in 1896 and a new meetings room in 1963. A number of changes to the entrance have been made over the years, the last in 1996 forming a single enclosed hall joining the Church and School Hall.

The church can be found by travelling from the Yarm High Street down the wynd that runs between the Three Cooks and the NatWest Bank. They can be found at the end of the wynd on the left hand side.

More details will be available nearer the concert. If you would like to host the choir in 2010 please contact us by going the the hosting request web page.
