'Founded in 1959 and based in Senghenydd ... We sing a wide range of music, including classic rock, hits from the West End, pieces from famous operettas, and, of course, traditional Welsh hymns. We love what we do and we are passionate about singing and having a fun time which is why we have performed over 1,000 concerts to date! Still, we don’t take ourselves too seriously – we’re just as happy singing in a hushed cathedral as we are outside Gregg’s on a bustling high street ...'

‘We men of Abertillery love all that belonging to a Male Voice Choir means. With our singing, comes recollections of our childhood in a dirty, noisy, politically conscious South Wales Valley. We enjoy the true fellowship, the inevitable humour, the intense concentration that are all part of twice weekly practices. None of us now spend our lives in the dark and danger of coal mining, since the closure of the last mine in our Valley! We have become technicians in clean factories, headmasters, engineers, shop owners, gentleman of retirement and yes, unfortunately some of us are unemployed. But our fathers were miners and they sang. They sang in our chapels and we sing with them. We are proud of our heritage.’

‘A small amateur theatre group based in the South East Wales area. The group was set up in order to try to put on productions that were just that little bit different. We wanted to be a society that has everyone involved. Quality of singing and acting is paramount and innovation and "challenging the norm" is at the forefront of everything we do. We enjoy ourselves and take great efforts to ensure our audiences do as well. We believe in nurturing talent and avoiding the pitfalls of bad sets, bad costumes and run-of-the-mill productions. If it is worth doing, it is worth doing well!’
