Contact Information & forthcoming concerts


Haydock Male Voice Choir is one of the oldest choirs in North West England having been formed in 1923 in the former coal mining village of Haydock. This extended village is located roughly equidistant between St Helens, Wigan and Warrington. The choir now draws its membership from a wide area, with many members making a round trip of 50 miles to attend rehearsals and concerts. We rehearse twice a week and perform concerts in a variety of venues. Our concert programmes are selected from 50 to 60 pieces which have been learned by the choir and are sung from memory. Performing concerts is one of our pleasures and a reward for the considerable effort we put in at rehearsals to get everything right. To arrange a concert of join the choir please contact the secretary Alan Gaskell, or Ray Holroyd see contact details above.

We are led by a music team of three talented professional musicians: Musical Director Daniel Craddock and piano accompanists Ruth Webb and Rachel Fright, both graduates of the Royal Northern College of Music and each although specialising in piano accompaniment are soloists in their own right.

Our Thanks: We fund most of our activities from our own resources, but we have been supported by local organisations who have gifted us funds. We wish to acknowledge the generous support given by organisations such as the Coalfield Re-Generation Fund; the National Lottery; Rainford Trust; Merseyside Community Foundation; Harry & Mavis Pilkington Trust as well as St Helens Council.
