The Sunday Boys opened the second evening of Enlighten Bury with a performance at the gallery as part of the 60/50 project.
Since February, artist Jez Dolan has been in residence at Bury Art Museum undertaking an ongoing series of artist-led interventions in the Permanent Collection Gallery entitled ‘60/50’. The project title refers to the significant anniversaries of 2017; 60 years since the Wolfenden Report recommended the decriminalisation of sexual relations in private between men, and 50 years since the Sexual Offences Act executed partial decriminalisation. Two of the most important milestones in UK LGBT+ emancipation and legislation. Both of these had significant impact around the world.
The Sunday Boys was started by Michael Betteridge in January 2016 to give Manchester an inclusive choir for men in the city to socialise and learn to sing.
The Sunday Boys is open to any one that has a male voice (vocally) and wants to sing in an inclusive and friendly environment.
