Then named Low Fell Ladies Choir, the group was formed in 1941 by Mollie Peacock, who remained the Musical Director of the group until 1986.

Our History



Along with Felling Male Voice Choir, Low Fell Singers represented Northumberland and Durham at the Festival of Britain.

A busy time for the choir, taking part in the Eisteddford in Llangollen, performing at the opening of the Tyne Tees Television Studio and recording "These Happy Sounds" with Felling Male Voice Choir.


We had the honour of performing at the 

Garden Festival in Gateshead.

The Newcastle Festival attracted choirs from all over the country. Low Fell Ladies Choir took part and came second and third in class.


A National Association of Choirs concert in Newcastle went so well in 2000, that the group - now named Low Fell Singers - were invited to join singers from Bergen, Norway in a concert in their home country. 

Celebrating its 60th year in 2001, the choir continued to go from strength to strength by singing on BBC's 'Songs of Praise', recorded at the Sage in Gateshead.

We were invited to participate in the Festival of Brass and Voices at the Royal Albert Hall, in aid of Cancer Research UK.


The group was invited to the Mayor of Gateshead's Garden Party. We were presented with a Community Service Award and each member received an individual medal.

We returned to the Sage alongside other choirs to celebrate 10 years of the Angel of the North.


Our 70th year was filled with celebration and included singing in Chester with the MVC and performing in Chester cathedral.

After over a year of meeting and singing together on Zoom during the pandemic, we belatedly celebrated our 80th anniversary with a ceilidh.
