The Huddersfield Boys’, Girls’ and Youth Choirs have around 60 members aged 8-18 who rehearse weekly during term time. Choir members sing Mass at St. Patrick’s Church, Huddersfield and regularly perform in local concerts and competitions and have placed in the prestigious Mrs. Sunderland festival in Huddersfield Town Hall three years in a row. The Choirs have sang Vespers at Liverpool Metropolitan Cathedral, Mass at Nottingham and Norwich Cathedral and toured to London, singing at the Temple Church and Westminster Cathedral.

The Huddersfield Youth Choir founded in 2014 combines older members of the Boys’ and Girls’ Choirs to create an SATB choir. They are delighted to be touring to London in 2020 and look forward to returning to Westminster Cathedral. The Huddersfield Choirs have broadcast on Radio 2’s Sunday Half-Hour, Radio 4’s Daily Service and BBC One’s Songs of Praise. Most recently the combined choirs broadcast BBC Radio 4’s Sunday Worship in July 2019.
