Welcome to Haydock Male Voice Choir


We enjoy singing a wide range of music, from pop, jazz, folk to contemporary. There is something for


With our inspirational musical director and talented accompanists, music-making is fun from your very first rehearsal.


Founded in 1923, Haydock are your local community choir with a rich singing heritage. We’re a friendly group of like-minded men of all ages and backgrounds. We perform our own concerts, collaborate and even travel.

Why did Alan join our choir?

“I was invited by Chairman, Derek Parr, after hearing me sing in church. I declined for sometime pleading pressure of work and my perceived inability to sing well enough. However, after accepting an invitation to a concert I was overwhelmed by the magnificent sound and joined immediately. From then on I have enjoyed wonderful camaraderie and been privileged to be part of a brilliant choral experience with Haydock, and jointly with many other choirs.”

What made Dave join a choir, and why would he recommend it?

“My association with male voice choirs started aged 13 when my voice broke.  I joined Rossendale Male Voice Choir after being encouraged by my school music teacher.  I spent seven happy years with them, a very successful choir and it was an education in how to sing, but a change in career saw me leave the Rossendale Valley for Widnes.

Singing came to an end until I took early retirement and a chance viewing of Songs of Praise one evening rekindled my interest after hearing a Welsh Male Voice choir on the programme.  I joined a local male voice choir and spent ten years with them, but circumstances saw me leave and come to Haydock three and a half years ago.

I would say to anyone, come and give it a go, you don’t have to read music, you won’t have to audition in front of other members, nor do you have to be a soloist.  I am sure that you will enjoy the company and the banter.”
