CORONAVIRUS / COVID-19
On Tuesday 17th March 2020 the Choir's officers and committee agreed to suspend all choir and community group activities until further notice. This decision was taken to protect choir members, their families, and our community.
Update September 2020: We are pleased to announce that although we are not yet allowed to resume choir rehearsals, The Morlais Hall is slowly being reopened for more of the local groups that use our facilities. Slimming World resumed using the Morlais Hall on August 20th and will be followed by Flicks'n'Kicks on Monday September 14th, Tai Chi on Friday September 25th, and Tabernacle Church on Sunday October 4th.
We continue to work with RCT Trading Standards to reopen our Hall while always strictly observing all present COVID-19 government guidance and regulations.

150th Anniversary Commemorative Event of the Ferndale Colliery Disaster of 1867
Wednesday 8th November 2017, 18:00 - 21:00
Côr Meibion Morlais are proud to be performing at the 150th Anniversary Commemorative Event of the Ferndale Colliery Disaster of 1867.
On Friday 8 November 1867, the whole district was shaken by two consecutive explosions at Ferndale No.1. Rescuers were hampered by roof falls, and with the air so foul, with some trepidation the furnace which powered the ventilation was relit. It took a month to recover the remains of the 178 men and boys, with most bodies showing signs of severe burning, and many so badly disfigured it made identification impossible.
