London Welsh


Our History

The London Welsh Rugby Club has a long and illustrious history, and its latest torchbearers – the London Welsh Rugby Club Choir – are spreading the good name of the club through music and friendship..

All Inclusive

Our last full season in 2019/20 saw us finish 4th in National Championship 1 South East (North). However, it also saw us manage to field a near constant full squad of 20 for every fixture which demonstrates the considerable depth we’re building within the team.

Well Travelled

With strong ties to both their Welsh roots and the exile community centred around London Welsh’s famous Old Deer Park, further high-profile appearances on national radio and television followed, including its defining moment, performing at the 2012 London Olympics Closing Ceremony in front of a worldwide audience of more than one billion.


And the choir that John Dawes presided over goes from strength to strength too, with its 40-strong members kept firmly in line by musical director Michael Wyn Jones. Jones has been a member of the BBC Symphony Chorus and the 1998 Choir of the year Exmoor Singers, and is responsible for a development of the choir few could have predicted. The repertoire has been expanded, a new style of singing introduced and innovations developed wherever possible. The result is a choir singing with an infectious enthusiasm.
