Festival Celebration Concert

The first Festival Celebration Concert was introduced as a celebration of our 25th anniversary, but it seemed a shame to only do it once, so it has returned every year since! The choir concert gives choirs the opportunity to relax and enjoy themselves without the eyes of the adjudicators on them. It’s all about entertaining rather than competing.

Past choir concerts have been a great success with choirs getting involved from all over the UK. It is always guaranteed to be a night full of variety, with male voice choirs, ladies, mixed, youth and barbershop style all ready to showcase the very best of their repertoires. Last year we had a special performance from WNO artist Samantha Hay!

It’s also becoming an annual tradition for a get together in the Orme Suite after the concert. Over the past few years, choirs that have performed at the concert gather together for an après sing-a-long whilst getting to know one another.

Please note that spaces to take part in the concert are limited, and once we’re full, we’re full, and choirs will be selected on a first come first served basis. Express your interest on the entry forms here. For anyone interested in coming along to this wonderful evening of choral music, tickets will be on sale nearer the time, so keep an eye out!
