As Felling Male Voice Choir build up towards their Centenary, it is worth reflecting on what happened 50 years ago at their Golden Jubilee.
Their Annual Concert was at Newcastle City Hall. They took part in contests at Llangollen Eisteddfod, Middlesbrough and Blackpool Music Festival. The Choir held concerts in the region at Blyth, Earsdon, Killingworth, Monkwearmouth, Stanley, Trimdon and Willington. They also took part in concerts in Carlisle, Keighley in Yorkshire, and the National Association of Choirs’ 50th Anniversary Concert in Derby.
The Choir held a Special Commemorative Service in Holly Hill Methodist Church and a Golden Jubilee Banguet.
Felling Male Voice Choir were featured in a special TV programme for BBC Look North and on Radio Durham. Not a bad celebration!
