Felling Male Voice Choir will be celebrating their Centenary next year in 2020.
The Choir has been competed in many music festivals around the country. The most popular competition was held in Blackpool in the autumn, usually the week after the “illuminations”. This was the contest which brought together the finest choirs in Great Britain in fierce competition.
Felling were successful many times during their visits to Blackpool. One year which stands out was when the choir won first prize with the test piece “The Fighting Temeraire”. What was most memorable about this performance was that the choir had won this competition fifty years previous and had five of the original men singing who were in that choir. They were given a special mention on the stage and later on their return home, a special spot on the local TV news programmes.
Watch out for future dates to catch one of the best male voice choirs in the region!
