Who We Are
The Nohow singers
The Nohow line-up has changed several times over the years, but always comprises the best of local amateur musical talent. Each member of Nohow has been playing in musicals for over twenty years.
The Nohow Story
How it all started
Nohow was formed in 1989 by Don and Nora Howcroft as a one-off charity show, but proved so popular they have been performing ever since. The group has raised more than £100,000 for charities.

Nohow Productions are a singing group based in Bolton, Lancashire, raising money for charity by presenting concerts of songs from musicals, films and pop standards.

Each year the group gives a sell-out three night Christmas show at their home base in Walmsley, then go on the road, playing private gigs at various locations in the North West.

Nohow have performed at the Libori Festival in Paderborn, Germany and at private concerts in the Loire Valley, France. They have sung at the Bolton Christmas Lights Celebrations, at Bolton Christmas Markets and, as part of the Radio Manchester World War One at Home event, they gave three performances in Albert Square, Manchester.

They have also released two CDs, the profits of which went to the Willow Foundation and Bolton Hospice. If you can hear the music playing on this website, it won't surprise you to know that you're listening to Nohow!
