Choir Competitions

Let’s get singing!

In 2024, we will run two sets of choir classes – a choir may enter either a live or an online class, but not both.

  • Live choirs classes will be held in the Free Church, Hampstead Garden Suburb starting at 2pm on Saturday 20 April 2024.
  • Online choir classes will be held via Zoom from 4:30 on Wednesday 1 May 2024.

All choirs from the UK or Ireland are welcome and every choir will receive a written adjudication sheet and a certificate of participation.

The closing date for Choir Competitions is Friday 22 March 2024.

Entry Fee £50 per choir. Age is considered to be the age as at 1st September before the class, so that everyone from the same school year is in the same class. If an entrant has been a pupil of the Adjudicator in the year prior to the Festival or is well-known to the Adjudicator, they should contact the Section Administrator before entering.
