At the end of the 1950’s, there was a change taking place in Felling Male Voice Choir!
The membership was expanding to people who lived outside of Felling and Gateshead. Some members were moving but there was a general decline in small church or chapel choirs after the Second World War.
Felling, with its reputation, benefitted with the talent from other choirs. Membership expanded into the Tyne Valley, Durham and south Northumberland. There was also an increase in members using private cars as against public transport!
