Only Boys Aloud: Côr y Gogledd

Only Boys Aloud made their first appearance at the opening of the National Eisteddfod in Ebbw Vale in 2010: we now have more than 200 teenage boys in 14 choirs across Wales who meet weekly at their local venue and come together for full rehearsals and concerts. In the last 12 months the boys have launched a cruise ship, sung at Downing Street, performed the opening song for Sport Relief on BBC1 and headlined their own 5th Birthday Concert at the Wales Millennium Centre. Equally importantly they have performed in their own communities, offering support to local fundraising initiatives and causes which resonate with them.

Our boys make new friends, learn new skills and are bursting with a sense of fun, pride and confidence: “Only Boys Aloud has been life-changing for me. It has given me a direction in life and has given me the confidence to believe in myself and realise nothing is impossible and there are opportunities out there for every kind of person from all types of backgrounds”
