“The opening of the new Kent Coalfield, at the start of the 20th Century, brought miners from all over the British Isles, anxious to find work. Many were from South Wales and Yorkshire, and they brought with them strong choral traditions. Soon the collieries at Snowdown, Betteshanger, Tilmanstone and Chislet all boasted male voice choirs, and in 1948 all four choirs combined to give a concert at The Royal Albert Hall in London. Sadly, the Snowdown Choir is now the only one left”.
