Where and Who We Are

Radcliffe is a town within the Metropolitan Borough of Bury in Greater Manchester, UK. Coal measures underlie the area and a series of mines opened during the Industrial Revolution helped to transform the town into an important industrial area. Locally sourced coal provided the fuel for a variety of cotton spinning and papermaking industries. The town's wealth as a mill town gave rise to many outlets of entertainment for it's population. Radcliffe Male Voice Choir formed in 1921 continues to this day and is one of the oldest Male Voice Choirs in the UK.  

With a current membership of about forty individuals from various walks of life, the choir is under the direction of our Musical Director and Conductor Keith C Heywood and welcomes all men aged 16 years or over.

We have a significant repertoire of about two hundred items from traditional Welsh pieces to Classicals and items from Musicals to Pop songs, in fact something for almost everybody to enjoy.


A warm welcome awaits you!
