Welcome to The Downsmen

We are The North Surrey Barbershop Harmony Club, popularly known as "The Downsmen".

Barbershop is four part acapella (unaccompanied) singing and we are affiliated to the British Association of Barbershop Singers.  We rehearse each Wednesday evening in Leatherhead with a repertoire covering four part harmony for both modern and classic songs arranged in the barbershop style. 

We perform for local charities, civic events and private functions, and we also run occasional short Learn To Sing courses to encourage people to come along and enjoy a taster in an informal and friendly atmosphere, and to join us if they feel they would like to continue with this great hobby.

We are a very friendly group who welcome singers of all ages and all enquiries about membership and performances -  for  futher information please see our website : , or contact Stuart Freeman on 014836 276 905 or

A very enjoyable weekend was had by all who attended, and thanks to all those who were able to attend.
