New Mill Male Voice Choir is based in the village of New Mill near Huddersfield, West Yorkshire, not far from the ‘Last of the Summer Wine’ town of Holmfirth

The choir was founded in 1991 when twelve men gathered in a local public house to sing. Len Williams, a former singer with the Welsh National Opera, became Musical Director and provided the inspiration and encouragement to form these men into a Choir. Two years later and with three times more members the Choir sang as part of the World Choir at Cardiff Arms Park under the baton of Owain Arwel Hughes with Shirley Bassey as the main attraction!

Since those early days the Choir has progressed and flourished, performing at the Royal Albert Hall and enjoying overseas tours. In 2014 the Choir sang at the Menin Gate in Ypres to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the start of World War I.

The Choir host an annual concert in Huddersfield Town Hall with guests such as Alison Balsom, Julian Lloyd Webber and Aled Jones. In October 2022 Sir Willard White will make his third appearance with the Choir.
