Only Men Aloud at Pembroke Castle on July 5th

02 Jul 2015


Here is all of the infomation you need, if you are coming to see us on Sunday in the beautiful setting of Pembroke Castle. 


Here you will find information on timings, the venue, getting there, parking what you can or can't bring etc..

Joining us on Sunday will be Sophie Evans, Tenby Male Choir, Collaboration and young Welsh singer-song writer Delyth Mclean. 

Wales’ own Sophie Evans played Dorothy in Andrew Lloyd Webber’s The Wizard of Oz at the London Palladium for a couple of years, before embarking on a solo career that has seen her appear on stages around the world, on screen in films like The World’s End, and regularly on TV. The local 40-strong Tenby Male Choir is from the heart of Pembrokeshire, and celebrates 40 years this year. 

Also on the bill is a one year musical theatre project - Collaboration based in Pembrokeshire, and led by Jen Biddle. Collaboration is a group of 14 young people aged between 12 and 18, all with a passion for musical theatre and performing. Collaboration was set up in September 2014 to enable members to perform together as often as possible with the hope that they would be able to work with industry professionals, and gain a valuable insight into the world of performing.

Tickets are available from the Castle;; also from Milford Haven Torch Theatre and 01646 695267; and Dales Music Store in Tenby. 

Tickets will also be available to purchase from the Castle on the day. 

The Pembroke Castle concert follows Only Men Aloud’s current 29 date tour of Wales, England and Scotland. Over the years the hugely popular vocal group has built up a strong fan base across the country, and the Pembroke Castle audience will be eager to see the new generation eight man line-up of OMA performing songs from their new album, their fifth studio recording, which will be released in the summer.                       

After 13 years and some incredible experiences – from winning BBC’s Last Choir Standing and the Strictly Come Dancing Christmas Special to scooping a Classical Brit Album of the Year Award and performing to a global TV audience as the Cauldron was lit at the Opening Ceremony of the London 2012 Olympics, Only Men Aloud has undergone a regeneration with a fresh line-up and a new, more individual style that suits their personalities - but with the same popular appeal that has wowed fans across the country.

The new album, Only Men Aloud On The Road is later this summer, produced through PledgeMusic, allowing fans the opportunity to invest in it through sales of exclusives such as gold disks and unique OMA performances. 

Tim and colleagues in OMA are also busy with the Aloud charity which is developing opportunities for Welsh youngsters in Only Boys Aloud and the Wales Millennium Centre Only Kids Aloud Chorus to discover the joys and benefits of choral singing. This has already seen some remarkable achievements, including OBA coming third in the final of Britain’s Got Talent and recording a Top 40 Christmas album.






Only Men Aloud

Who are Only Men Aloud?

Only Men Aloud were formed in 2000. The group's aim was to inject some new blood into the Welsh male choir tradition. The group's repertoire is varied and eclectic, from Welsh folksongs and hymns to musicals and opera, from barbershop and swing to pop.

The choir won The BBC's Last Choir Standing in the summer of 2008, and released their debut album shortly afterwards, which went gold in the UK.
