Welcome to Backworth Male Voice Choir!

The Backworth Male Voice is based in North Tyneside and has been performing regularly throughout the region and beyond for over sixty years.

The Choir was founded by the local miners of Backworth Colliery in 1951 and although the pits are long-gone, the Choir is more active than it has ever been, having recently performed in such venues as: The Sage Gateshead, Durham Cathedral, Newcastle City Hall and at the Menin Gate in Belgium.

We are a seventy strong choir with a passion for singing and socialising; proud of our heritage we are committed to keeping the art of male voice singing enjoyable and engaging.

We hope that you enjoy your visit!
