A male acapella chorus from Bromley has picked up a prestigious regional award for its performances.

Kentones, formed of more than 60 men from across the borough, won at the Top Choir Kent competition at a gala concert in Canterbury.

Seven community choirs featured at the gala, with finalists covering genres including gospel, classical, choral and school choirs.

As part of the final, each of the finalists including Bromley’s winners, were broadcast on BBC Radio Kent on Easter Monday.

Following the win, the Kentones will now take part in a performance at the Marlowe Theatre in Canterbury this month.

The Orpington-based chorus also has performances at the national barbershop convention in Harrogate and a charity performance alongside the royal Philharmonic Orchestra.

One of the largest barbershop groups in the country, the Kentones were found more than 40-years-ago,

Anyone who wants to attend the friendly chorus’s rehearsals are welcome to attend at St Paul’s Church Hall, Crofton Road every Thursday evening.
