Côr Glanaethwy Flash Mob Take Arndale Shoppers By Surprise


Côr Glanaethwy, made famous on ITV’s Britain’s Got Talent and BBC’s Last Choir Standing.


Today, in the Manchester Arndale, the choir took shoppers by surprise in a beautifully orchestrated flash mob. (See what we did there?)



Choir master, Cefin Roberts, put together the event in honour of St. David’s day, a famous Welsh holiday.


A giant Welsh dragon and a 70-piece choir will descended on Manchester’s Arndale Centre at two points throughout today.


The surprise performance comes as part of Wales’ 2017 Year of Legends campaign, which is inviting visitors to discover and celebrate Wales’ past, present and future like never before.


Gwynedd, Conwy, Anglesey Council and the Snowdonia National Park will be encouraging passers-by to experience the rich culture, heritage, and landscapes that are only a two hour’s drive from their doorstep. Explore Snowdonia, Conwy and Anglesey, the most romantic place in North Wales as it is home to St Dwynwen, the patron saint of Love. There is also an underground storytelling adventure of King Arthur’s Labyrinth in the south of Snowdonia which is not to be missed. 


With Lonely Planet naming North Wales as a ‘must-visit’ region this year, and the destination itself boasting Europe’s largest zip-wire, the UK’s first inland surf lagoon and a ring of magnificent castles which are now a UNESCO World Heritage Site, there has never been a better time to visit Wales.
