If you’ve been thinking about booking a space for your choir at this year’s UK Choir Festival, look no further. If these 6 reasons don’t inspire you to get involved, we don’t know what will!
1. Guaranteed inclusivity
The UK Choir Festival is an inclusive environment designed to be accessible for all types of choir groups. Regardless of age, background or singing ability, there’s a place for everyone.
Size doesn’t matter, and you will always be welcome whether you go it alone or attend as part of a 100-strong ensemble.
The event is open to any style of choir, including:
- Gospel choirs
- Community choirs
- A cappella choirs
- School choirs
- Theatre choirs
- Barbershop choirs
- Choral societies
- Church choirs
2. Learn from the best
Each event during the UK Choir Festival promises to be an insightful day of learning from some of the most renowned workshop leaders in the country.
Hear top tips from producers, directors and vocal coaches, and take part in audience-wide activities to start practicing your new skills.
Platinum ticket holders will even have the chance to attend a 1-2-1 feedback Q&A session with workshop leaders for a personalised experience.
3. It’s all about team work
With a festival-wide rule of all singing being strictly non-competitive, you can be sure that your choir will come away feeling part of a much wider community of like-minded people.
The workshops are collaborative, with a strong focus on learning, therefore each attendee will share the same goal of supporting each other and improving their performances.
“My mission is to give choirs the opportunity to learn… develop… perform with some of the best workshop leaders in the UK”
UK Choir Festival Founder and Producer
4. Do what you do best
As a choir, your group will be no stranger to performing in front of an audience, and the UK Choir Festival will give you a platform to do just that.
Your choir will have the opportunity to sing in the event’s final showcase, where your leader will receive confidential feedback from workshop leaders with invaluable advice to take forward into your next performance.
5. Opportunity to socialise
Choirs come from all over the country to be a part of the UK Choir Festival, and for many, it has become a chance to socialise as much as to learn.
With several break times and networking opportunities built into the schedule, the event can mean the flourishing of old friendships, and the beginning of new ones.
6. Explore new destinations
This year’s host venues are located in four beautiful cities, each with its own musical heritage.
If you haven’t visited Manchester, Brighton, York or Harrow before (or even if you have!), why not make a weekend of it and discover what else these inspiring destinations have to offer?
