Choir’s golden anniversary

September marks the start of a very big year for Much Wenlock Male Voice Choir as they celebrate their 50th anniversary. It all started in 1968 with a visit to the historic market town by the renowned Rhos Male Voice Choir from North Wales, after which a small group of Wenlock men decided start a choir of their own. Now, 50 years on, Rhos are coming back to perform with the choir they inspired at a special show at William Brookes School on Saturday 20 October.

MWMVC’s Tom Thompson says “It’s a mark of the quality of our choir that Rhos have enthusiastically agreed to sing some joint pieces on the night, to recognise our progress from those early years, to where we are today. This is such an honour as they remain a world class choir.”

There is a drive for more members with the aim of reaching 50 members for their 50th year, and the choir are holding a special Come and Try It event on Tuesday 11 September from 7pm at William Brookes School with refreshments and some new music to try. Visit for more information.
