A male voice choir sing in Santa costumes

Men Who Sing (PG) + Carlton Male Voice Choir


Available dates

Friday 10 December @ 7.00 PM

This humorous and melancholic portrait of a male voice choir begins when the filmmakers’ father, widower Ed, 90, sells the family home and arranges his own funeral.

His only remaining solace is Tuesday night practice, but with an average age of 74 and suffering a haemorrhaging of the bass section his beloved choir is facing a crisis of its own. They must act or face extinction.

So the hunt begins to find ‘brown haired men’ in their 40s and 50s who can take the choir forward. As their search intensifies we come closer to them. Whilst Ed finds new meaning, Merf deals with his own bad news by focusing on the Choirs revival and Gwyn laughs at his prostate cancer diagnosis and walks on the wing of a plane to raise money.

Finally, they raise themselves and travel to Northern Ireland to perform for the first time in 20 years.
