The Cottontown Chorus in aid of Parkinson's UK

the-cottontown-chorus-retro-logoSaturday 28 March 2015

The Cottontown Chorus of Bolton has established itself as a leading barbershop group within the UK. With a great sense of fun and a unique style of entertainment, the chorus has gripped audiences during its history of 34 years. Our close knit membership of nearly sixty guys has a strong commitment to vocal and performance excellence. Cottontown particularly enjoy competing in both national and international barbershop competitions. Well respected stages around the UK including the London Palladium have given us the opportunity to wow audiences with stirring harmonies, emotional lyrics, exciting choreography and visual effects.

In competition, the Bolton based group has succeeded in winning the much sought after Gold Medal at the British Association of Barbershop Singers (BABS) convention five times in the last eight years and represented the UK twice at the Barbershop Harmony Society (BHS) International Convention held in the USA. It was in 2008 when Cottontown Chorus probably attained most of its public attention by winning the adult section of the BBC 3 'Choir of the Year' competition. The chorus have since gone on to win the British Association of Barbershop Singers coveted Gold Medal in 2013 and remain Champions!
