So, come and experience an evening of song that will bring out all the best from this shared heritage with two choirs that enjoy having fun as much as they enjoy their singing.
Proceeds from the concert will be donated to the Newquay Lions Club charity fund.

The repution of Newquay MVC now goes before it and the choir needs no introduction locally. However, Pontypool MC come from further afield and may be less unknown.
They are a vigorous and forward-looking choir who, while seeking to preserve traditional male voice choral customs are determined to dispel the idea that male choir singing is for the old people. The choir was formed in 1963 and in a distinguished history have sung at the Millenium (now the Principality) stadium in Cardiff and at the Royal Albert Hall in London, as well as touring the length and breadth of the British Isles and places in Europe. Under the baton of their recently appointed Musical Director, Matthew Harrison, and accompanied by Idony Perret the choir sing a joyful mix of favourites both modern and traditional. The choir have recently been successful in recruiting some younger singers, who have added to the scope of the entertainment they offer.
