A VILLAGE choir from Wrexham are giving two annual concerts this year after the venue they normally perform at was fully booked.

The Fron Male Voice Choir, a four-part choir hailing from the village of the Froncysyllte, usually perform their annual concert at William Aston Hall, but this year will play at both Stiwt Theatre in Rhos and Port Sunlight's Gladstone Theatre on the Wirral.

With around fifty voices making up the choir, they are described as being one of the finest in the UK and in 2018 and won the the male voice choir competition at Llangollen Musical Eisteddfod. The decision to hold two concerts this year was in part because other venues in the area can simply not match the capacity of William Aston Hall.

Choir member David Thomas Jones said: "The only reason we've moved to the Stiwt is that despite us always having our annual concert in the second half of November there was no date available when we went to book it last October, they'd ready taken bookings.

"The Stiwt is less than half the size of the William Aston Hall so get your tickets sooner rather than later to avoid disappointment."

The concert at the Stiwt, which features young Holywell baritone Twm Tegid as a special guest, is taking place on Saturday, November 23, with the performance at the Gladstone Theatre on Saturday, November 9, while the choir are busy recording a new album during the month of August.

Mr Jones added: "Twm Tegid is a young bass baritone with a big voice and a big future. The choir first heard him sing at Liverpool’s Anglican Cathedral last year and he impressed them so much that they just had to sing with him again.

"Make a note of his name - the choir are sure you will be hearing a lot more of it in the future."

Tickets for the Stiwt concert are priced at £15 (£12.50 concessions) and are available via the box office 01978 841300 or online at
