THE celebrated City of Bath Male Choir will be performing at Crediton Congregational Church on Saturday, July 15.

The choir received world-wide acclaim when they reached the final stages of the BBC’s popular Last Choir Standing series.

Since that time they have toured Europe as well as visiting Japan and the USA on two occasions.

Most recently they were in Nashville in October 2022 singing to sell-out audiences in Tennessee.

The concert at Crediton will support the Blue Skye Thinking Charity that supports research into the treatment of childhood tumors.

The charity was the choice of members from the Mid Devon Good Afternoon Choir. A new community choir that started singing together last year, led by local music-man Jon Rawles.

Common denominator between the two choirs is Grenville Jones who lives in Bath and is the founder of the Bath Male Choir as well as the Good Afternoon Choirs that now stretch across the West of England from Gloucester to Cornwall.

More than 1,000 people sing in Grenville’s choirs.

Last November the City of Bath Male Choir performed its 10th birthday concert at The Guildhall in the City of Bath and it has also regularly sung in Bath Abbey as well as many Cathedrals and concert halls across England.

“Our Mid Devon Good Afternoon Choir meet every Tuesday from 2pm to 4pm at Crediton Congregational Church and we always welcome new prospective members,” said Jon Rawles, conductor.

He added: “There are no auditions, great music and this concert with the famous Bath Male Choir will be our very first public performance, so we are really looking forward to it.”

The concert will take place at 7.30pm with tickets now available online, priced at £10 from

This promises to be a fabulous night of music with the rare opportunity to hear one of the UK’s best-loved choirs who are famous for their “standing ovations!”
