27th June 18.45-20.45 at the Union Chapel's Lower Hall. Open to all chaps.
'A fun, relaxed & welcoming space for chaps/lads/blokes/geezers to find their voice and feel the power of the male voice multiplied by singing a variety of songs - some you will recognise, some you (probably) won't. Led by Chaps Choir leader Dominic Stichbury'

The choir is full at the moment, but we're always interested in hearing from chaps who would like to be part of our troupe, as spaces do come up throughout the year. If you've previously shown an interest or were on the old waiting list then give us another nudge by completing the form at the link below.

CLICK HERE to show your interest.

If you'd rather not wait you could try Bellow Fellows run by the founder & leader of Chaps Choir. The choir meets on Tuesday evenings in Angel, Islington and is open to any man who wants to have a go at singing. For more information visit their website.


Since Chaps Choir began, one of its missions is to offer an alternative model & identity for the singing male troupe. Research has shown singing in a group to be an activity that is hugely beneficial to physical & psychological health, however in the majority of the UK's mixed choirs men are usually in a minority.

Using non-traditional repertoire and teaching methods that are encouraging & inclusive, Chaps Choir has attracted men new to choir singing; the majority having never sung in a choir as an adult.

In the lead up to the choir's 2nd Birthday gig 'Chap-Up', a 5 week participation project was created to encourage a new cohort of men who had never sung in a choir to join in. 40 men joined the choir on stage for a handful of songs and many of these temporary chaps joined the ranks of Bellow Fellows.

A similar project occured later in 2015, which journalist Simmy Richman wrote about in the Independent. This lead to a performance at the Southbank's Being A Man festival.
