The Sunday Boys present 50 Years of Change

Join The Sunday Boys on their first ever solo gig for an evening of music, singing and celebration as they reflect on the 50th anniversary of the partial decriminalisation of homosexuality, as well as challenging existing preconceptions and prejudices.

Presenting an exciting and varied choral programme, The Sunday Boys will take you on a musical journey through the last 50 years of gay rights, and explore issues facing the LGBTQ+ community of today.

With original composition from Phillip Venables, Anna Appleby, Alfie Austin (Husk), classical repertoire from the likes of Benjamin Britten and Francis Poulenc as well as arrangements of hits from the Scissor Sisters, John Grant and Anthony and the Johnsons, this is sure to be a concert like no other. Sit back and enjoy the musical talents of The Sunday Boys as they take you on this important and poignant journey through 50 Years of Change and beyond. The concert will be led by The Sunday Boys’ Musical Director Michael Betteridge.

The Sunday Boys are Manchester’s male voice sensation, an unauditioned, inclusive male voice choir with a majority gay identifying membership that rehearse on Sunday evenings in central Manchester.

Over the past year The Sunday Boys have grown from small beginnings to a choir 60+ strong and have performed at prestigious gigs throughout the city and beyond.
