We’re delighted to announce the launch of an Only Girls Aloud choir in West Wales!
Building on the success of our Only Girls Aloud choir in South Wales, young people in years 7 to 13 will have the opportunity to make new friends, develop their singing skills, and take part in unique performance opportunities!
“We are so excited to launch Only Girls Aloud in West Wales and provide more young people with the opportunity to connect and engage with others whilst developing their singing skills and confidence. Only Girls Aloud in West Wales will provide a safe, friendly space for young women to express themselves freely alongside unique performance opportunities they may not otherwise have the chance to be involved in. The most exciting part is that as a new project the founding members of OGA West have the chance to shape the future of the choir.” Beth Jenkins, Project Manager: West Wales
Rehearsals will take place once a month during term time with our first rehearsal scheduled at the start of October. Our meeting venue will vary from month to month to accommodate members travelling from across West Wales – we’ll always be in touch with plenty of time!

“We are thrilled to be able to bring our Only Girls Aloud choir to West Wales. Following a successful pilot in South Wales, we are very much looking forward to expanding our work with teenage girls, and, with so much interest from young people in West Wales, it felt like the next natural step for us. I look forward to seeing how this develops over the next few years, particularly how we can make a positive impact on the lives of young people through group singing” Carys Wynne-Morgan, Chief Executive
If you are passionate about the work we are doing with young women in Wales and would like to get involved, we’re always looking for volunteers to support the delivery of our choirs! To volunteer with our new Only Girls Aloud choir in West Wales please email: [email protected]
