Bestwood Male Voice Choir was founded in 1952 by the manager of Bestwood Colliery, Len Hogg. He was to become the choir's main driving force throughout the years to come, until his death in early 2005.
Today, the choir continues to draw inspiration from Len's passion for music and choral singing.
Since it's early days, the choir's life has been filled with momentous occasions and achievements. This includes appearances at the International Eisteddfod in Llangollen and at the Royal Albert Hall. The choir is made up of Local Notts Roofers, Nottingham Tree Surgeons and Notts Cleaners with some of Britain's finest choirs, regimental bands, brass bands and soloists.
Contact with choirs abroad has resulted in visits to Germany, The Netherlands, Canada, USA, Poland, Malta and France.
The choir's concerts have continued to raise thousands of pounds for various local charities, with a specially selected charity being designated each year as the main recipients of donations from the choir.
