12 Brilliant Years of Only Boys Aloud


Two Gala Concerts Rearranged

2020 had seen the 10th Anniversary of Only Boys Aloud and last year the group announced Two Gala Concerts to celebrate this huge milestone.

Due to the ongoing situation with live performances, these Gala Concerts have now been rearranged again to July 2022. The concerts will now take place at St David’s Hall, Cardiff on Sun 3rd July 2022 and now in Rhyl Pavilion on Sun 17th July 2022, both at 5pm. Tickets previously purchased for Cardiff will be honoured for the rescheduled date. If you are unable to attend the rearranged date, please consider donating the value of your ticket to The Aloud Charity at www.aloud.cymru/donate.

Tickets are on sale through Ticketmaster.co.uk and each venue’s box office. For any further ticket inquiries, please contact your point of purchase.

In March 2010, Only Boys Aloud was launched as a new initiative to get boys singing in Wales, breathing new life into the Welsh Male Choir tradition and inspiring teenage boys to find confidence, community, joy, friendship through song. No audition, no fee and inclusivity was, and still is central to the scheme.

With 13 choirs working in some of the most deprived areas in Wales, word of this phenomenon has spread throughout the globe. The boys’ Britain’s Got Talent audition clip has had well over 30 million views on YouTube and they have messages posted almost daily on their website and social media from around the world.

Created for a one-off concert in 2010, OBA has gone from strength to strength, gaining a momentous 3rd place in ITV’s Britain’s Got Talent in 2012, performing at Buckingham Palace in 2013 to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the coronation, launching a brand-new Royal Caribbean Cruise Liner, signing an album deal with Sony and much, much more.

Fast forward eleven years and The Aloud Charity has now engaged with well over 1,000 boys through Only Boys Aloud choirs in North and South Wales plus they’ve also created Only Kids Aloud, the Only Boys Aloud Academi and a pilot choral project for Girls. For this extra special evening they will be bringing back some of their original boys and kids to perform alongside all of the Aloud choirs.

With young singers from every corner of Wales, join us as we celebrate a over a decade of music and memories with these two special gala concerts in Cardiff and Rhyl.
