Who ARE The Telfordaires?


We are an all-male voice chorus based in Telford, Shropshire, specialising in unaccompanied singing from the barbershop tradition. We belong to the British Association of Barbershop Singers and welcome new members. We offer our members a sense of achievement from taking on new challenges in the company of cheerful and friendly people, and our audiences the delight of being sung to in four-part harmony

We welcome visitors at our reheasrals. Whether you are looking for a new hobby, checking out live music options for your event, or just feel like an interesting evening out with friendly people, we have what you are looking for. You'll get an insight into our ongoing programme of developing singing and performance skills, and see how much fun we have along the way. We like to invite our guests to particpate to see what harmony feels like from the inside, but if you just want to watch, that's fine too.

We rehearse on Wednesday evenings, 7.30 - 10.00 pm at Old Hall School, Stanley Road, Wellington, TF1 3LX. IDrop us a note to let us know you're coming, so we can keep an eye out for you when you arrive, and also brief you on our covid safety protocols.

We support a range of local events with our songs - from community fund-raisers to more formal Civic performances.  And we also enter Regional and National singing competitions.  

After more than a year of having to meet online, we are now back to singing live and re-connecting with our local communities.

To get a flavour of how we spent lockdown, below is our final lockdown project, prepared to showcase at the recent Virtual Convention of the British Association of Barbershop Singers, featuring a brand new arrangement by our MD, Liz.
