Garndiffaith Gleemen

We've been to see the Garndiffaith Gleemen a few times this year, and we always really enjoy their programme. They tend to be a little more adventurous with the material they choose than a lot of male voice choirs in the area!

The choir was founded in 1948 by Horace Carter with the aim of competing at the national Eisteddfod. Over the years the choir has performed at all kinds of events, across Europe and beyond. Today they have a busy schedule of events and concerts, and an annual showcase held at the Garndiffaith Millennium Hall.

The Gleemen practice on Mondays and Thursdays, 7 - 9pm, at the Zion Hill Community Centre in Pontnewynydd. If you're interested in having a go, you're welcome to just pop along! Find out more about the choir at their website, garndiffaithgleemen.strikingly.com.
