Singing Group

We all know that singing is good for our wellbeing, as well as helping with breathing and reducing stress.

Our singing group is very informal and light hearted, and brings together people affected by cancer, family members and friends and staff working in oncology.

Why not come along and join us?

The group meets on the second and fourth Thursday of the month in the chapel at Huddersfield Royal Infirmary, 4pm until 6pm. We have tea and coffee for the first half hour and then the singing starts at 4.30pm.

The group is led by a local musician, Mellow John and some of the hospital staff and patients also play instruments. Any song suggestions are welcomed and our staff and volunteers will organise the words and music.

All voices are very welcome to come along and join the singing group and we are keen to grow this small group and encourage more people to join us.

The group meets on the second and fourth Thursday of the month from 4pm until 6pm.

In chapel on the ground floor at Huddersfield Royal Infirmary, Acre Street, Lindley, Huddersfield, HD3 3EA.


Our singing group is sadly on hold at the moment due to the coronavirus, but we will let you know when we start again.

Here’s a quote from one of our specialist palliative nurses about the singing group

I have benefitted personally from the Macmillan Singing Group which is open to patients, carers and staff who are affected by cancer. This small and very amateur group meets in a really warm, open and supportive environment, facilitated by Helen and Mandy, and is a great source of relaxation, laughter and friendship which is enjoyed by all who attend.”

Quote from a patient

“Next was the Macmillan singing group. I love to sing, what a way to let it all out!! Coffee and a natter first, just fantastic.”
