Welcome to Ashington & District Male Voice Choir

Welcome to Ashington & District Male Voice Choir formed in 1916. The Choir celebrated its Centenary in 2016 and is looking forward to reaching our 110 year milestone.

Based in Southeast Northumberland, the Choir attracts members from across the region.

The Choir has a rich history and performs a varied selection of songs. It is appropriate that several numbers are about coal mining as Ashington was once famous as 'the largest coal mining village in the world'.

Singing in a choir can have many benefits for you:

1.    It can release or improve your singing skills,

2.    It can build your self-confidence and release emotions,

3.    It can generally improve your wellbeing and research indicates benefits for mental health,

4.    It can be a great way to meet new friends and enjoy a new social experience,

5.    It can also be great fun and develop your teamwork skills.

The Choir meets at Stakeford & Bomarsund Sports and Welfare Centre, Choppington, Northumberland, NE62 5UB on Thursday evenings between 7pm and 9pm. Why don't you come along and enjoy? You will be made very welcome.
