LABBS is one of three barbershop-singing organisations in the United Kingdom, and the only purely-British organisation for female barbershop singers. Our members love to sing and we take every opportunity to share our love of barbershop and our passion for harmony, wherever we can. Since its establishment in 1976, LABBS has grown to have around 60 clubs and over 2300 members who are located up, down and across the country from Cornwall to Scotland. The choruses vary in size and are made up of women of all ages but at the heart is their shared love of singing, friendship and being part of a modern and dynamic association. Our LABBS youth choruses also draw young members from around the country.
LABBS holds an annual convention in late autumn. This is an exciting weekend, packed with competitions for both choruses and quartets and shows with talented performers from the best of barbershop across the UK and barbershop organisations around the world. Representatives from our organisation also compete with success at a European level, and travel to showcase our best talent in Europe and the USA.
