The Cottontown Chorus of Bolton has established itself as a leading barbershop group within the UK. With a great sense of fun and a unique style of entertainment, the chorus has gripped audiences during its history of over 40 years. Our close-knit membership of nearly sixty guys has a strong commitment to vocal and performing excellence. Cottontown particularly enjoys competing in both national and international barbershop competitions. Well, respected stages around the UK including the London Palladium have given us the opportunity to wow audiences with stirring harmonies, emotional lyrics, exciting choreography, and visual effects.
In competition, the Bolton-based group has succeeded in winning the much sought-after Gold Medal at the British Association of Barbershop Singers (BABS) convention eight times since 2005 and has represented the UK on four occasions at the Barbershop Harmony Society (BHS) International Convention held in the USA. It was in 2008 when Cottontown Chorus probably attained most of its public attention by winning the adult section of the BBC 3 Choir Of The Year competition.
