Joining us for Men United are... Bristol Man Chorus

Somewhat uncharacteristically un-humbl-y of us, we’d like to think that The Magnificent AK47 and BlokeFest played a not insignificant part in the formation of Bristol Man Chorus…

Back in 2015, Sam Burns, the energetic and inspirational founding force behind Bristol Man Chorus, was invited to lead a workshop at BlokeFest where he taught the stirring “Blood and Gold” in a way that roused the spirits of the assembled throng and gave Sam a taste of how spine-tingling working with just male voices could be.  

He enjoyed the experience so much that he was himself inspired to set up his own Man Group.

And what an inspired move that was!  Since their inception in January 2016 the group has gone from strength to strength.  They have performed at a hugely impressive array of events, in the Colston Hall, the Hippodrome, St Georges, the Old Vic, St Albans, the M-Shed, SS Great Britain, Southmead Hospital & multiple strange outdoor locations including the Portway & Staple Hill Tunnel. 

Their repertoire includes Mighty Male Voice classics from the Land of the Dragon, Georgian laments to make the very stones weep, Vintage Barbershop cheese (tempered with a small pinch of cheek & salt!) and also contemporary works, spirituals, shanties & odes to facial hair of course!

As if that wasn’t enough, Sam also runs the might Gurt Lush, one of the largest and most popular choral groups in the land.

We are so looking forward to the workshop and main evening event to hear these guys in action and mingle with some of our “Brothers in song”.

Find out more about this amazing group via and their YouTube Channel.

To be part of what should be an amazing event combining the talents of Bristol Man Chorus and many others, visit to get your tickets, or have a quick watch of our promo video, then head to (hard sell, but we don't want people to miss out!).
