Join The Sunday Boys in the incredible surrounds of Bury Parish Church, this April as we host an evening of folk music, choral singing and celebration in two parts.

This exploration of folk music will look at folk through a queer lens and sees The Sunday Boys collaborating with folk singer songwriter Katy Rose Bennett to uncover traditional and contemporary folk songs of “coming together”. Expect some original pieces from Bennett, beautifully brought to life by The Sunday Boys.

In the second half of the evening, The Sunday Boys will revisit some toe-tapping classics as well as some new numbers in this special celebration opening a week-long celebration of Bury Pride. Expect hits from the likes of The Spice Girls, Kate Bush and Adele.

The Sunday Boys was formed by Michael Betteridge in January 2016 to give Manchester an inclusive LGBTQ+ choir for low voice singers (tenor / baritone / bass) in the city to learn to sing great music, perform, and make friends. With a keen focus on commissioning new work, the choir has grown from a small group of individuals to a group of over sixty strong.

They engage and support local, queer artists and our ongoing mission is to bring together a community of members, artists and supporters performing music with meaning.

This project is supported by a Progress Bursary from the Greater Manchester LGBTQ+ Arts and Culture Network, an LGBT Foundation project, supported using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England

This exciting performance is also supported by Bury Pride and English Folk Expo.
