Produced by Producer & Musical Director, Russell Scott, the UK Choir Festival is designed for choirs of all abilities, ages and styles, no matter whether you are a local community choir, a cappella choir, school or university choir, gospel choir, choral society or barbershop choir.

Each day will begin with a warm-up led by one of our expert leaders, followed by a series of workshops on various elements of singing.

It will involve practical and method teaching and everyone will be involved. There will be mass choral singing and demonstrations and choirs will be given the opportunity to take part in a final performance at the end of each day.

The festival is non-competitive but very much ‘hands-on’ for everyone to watch and learn from each other while being guided and developed by some of the best workshop leaders in the UK.

There will be opportunities to busk, make new friends and talk to the workshop leaders as well as learn new techniques, brush up on performance and hear about tips and tricks to help you be the very best you can be.

Whether you decide to attend for one day or two, the UK Choir Festival will be a fun, informative and exciting weekend of collaborative music-making!
