London's Male Voice Community Choir

  • Bellow Fellows at Islington Assembly Hall


    Bellow Fellows is London's male voice community choir and meets regularly in central London. There are no auditions and everything is taught by ear.

    We sing a variety of music, from well known pop to shanties, work songs & everything in-between.

    More detailed information about the choir can be found here.

    Variety of music

    The songs we sing are carefully chosen from different styles and traditions. A bracing tune one moment to a tender melody the next including songs from rock & pop, folk, and other singing traditions.

    Open to all*


    Whilst we know men enjoy singing, most mixed choirs have few in their ranks. Bellow Fellows is an attempt to encourage men out of the woodwork and get them into a singing community.

    No auditions. Learn by ear

    Bellow Fellows is run using principles of the Natural Voice Network. It uses an inclusive and supportive teaching approach, open to singers of varied confidence and experience.

    What's it like?

    'On Tuesday night I went to my very first choir practice with 45 other men. This was so far outside of my comfort zone, I nearly turned around and walked away


    It's now Friday and I am still floating on a cloud. Who knew singing in a group could be so joyful and uplifting? Can't wait for next Tuesday.'

    Back with my choir @FellowsBellow last night, which has reminded me to remind everyone else, just how good #singing is for you.

    Come & Sing!

    Bellow Fellows

    We meet on Tuesday evenings in Angel, N1 from 7.00-8.30pm. For information on term dates & our rehearsal venue visit this link.

    Bellow Fellows really is open to any man. A common story from new singers is their fear of coming along to the first session, but then how glad they were to bite the bullet by turning up.


    Many of us haven't sung since we were at school; the good news is that no experience is required to turn up and you do not need to be able to read music.

    Dominic Stichbury

    Dominic Stichbury is the founder and leader of Bellow Fellows. He has been leading choirs and singing workshops since 2009. In 2013 he set up Chaps Choir, the first alternative contemporary chorus in the uk that was open to any man. After this project grew it became clear that lots more chaps wanted a chance to sing.

    He has led choirs in schools, prisons and community centres and work regularly as workshop leader with organisations such as The Southbank Centre, Spitalfields Music, Voicelab and London based music education charities to deliver singing and music in a variety of settings.


    Dominic is a UK member of the Spooky Men's Chorale and sings with jazz & groove ensemble The London Vocal Project. As an arranger and choral director he's collaborated with artists including beatboxer Shlomo, Omar, Joe Stilgoe, Stephen Coates (The Real Tuesday Weld), Hattie Webb & Samantha Whates.


    As well as being a member of The Natural Voice Network Dominic has trained with the Association of British Choral Directors and completed an animateur apprenticeship with Spitalfields Music.
