About Nankersey Male Choir

Founded in 1950 and still living up to its motto “To sing for and to give pleasure” the Choir celebrates its 70th Anniversary in 2020.

Founded mainly by men from the pretty little fishing village of Flushing, near Falmouth, the choir now numbers almost 60 members who now hail from various other towns and villages in nearby West Cornwall.

Several thousands of pounds have been raised over the years to benefit local and national charities, organisations and projects.

History highlights include “Songs of Praise”; “Highway”; Hampton Court Flower Show; Royal Albert Hall (with massed Cornish choirs); the biennial Cornwall International Male Voice Choral Festival; the Royal Cornwall Show and the Fal River Festival.

The Choir welcomes new members at any time. You do not need to read music but prepared to be enthusiastic and committed.

The Choir practises on most Mondays from 7.30pm to 9.30pm at St Peter’s Church Hall, Flushing, near Falmouth – why not come and sing along or just listen in and see how enjoyable it is singing in a traditional Cornish Choir?
