Only Men Aloud’s Christmas tour gets rolling support


ONLY Men Aloud has recently (November, 2015) received some support to help it hit the road for its upcoming UK tour for a second year running from our Hadfield Road dealership.

The Cardiff-based vocal group’s Christmas 2015 UK Tour takes place in December and is being sponsored by us.

Gareth Howells, our General Manager, explained: “We have been supporting the super talented Only Men Aloud for a few years now. Last year we helped them with transport for their ‘We Need A Little Christmas’ tour and we were only more than happy to help them out again this year.

“As part of our sponsorship we have provided the group with two Nissan X-Trails to help them promote and travel between each venue on their tour. We hope they enjoy using their new vehicles.

“In return for our support the male vocal group will be performing at our Christmas party in aid of George Thomas Hospice Care. The event will take place at our dealership on Thursday, December 10 from 6.30pm until 8.30pm. There will be craft stalls for visitors to browse and we can’t wait to hear Only Men Aloud sing a selection of Christmas Carols.”

Only Men Aloud was formed by Tim Rhys-Evans, who is a classically trained singer and former musical director of the Welsh National Youth Opera. In 2008 the group won the BBC’s Last Choir Standing competition.

Craig Yates, who is a member of Only Men Aloud, said: “We’re very grateful to Wessex Garages for their continued support. It is very much appreciated. The vehicles are a great help and means people can spot us when we travel around the country as they will be stickered up.”

Only Men Aloud’s Christmas tour will feature songs from their latest album ‘On The Road’ and a selection of music from traditional Christmas favourites to rock and pop classics. The tour takes place on selected dates throughout December at venues across the UK. For further information, please visit www.onlymenaloud.com.
