Become a Festival Friend!

We are very excited to celebrate our 10th festival this October, and our first fully live event since 2019.

Following two hugely successful years of virtual and hybrid programmes, we will be presenting a superb programme of live guest artists, international choir performances, competitions for school, national and international choirs, choral trails, community concerts, workshops and lots more in venues throughout the city. We’re also keeping some of the best bits from our virtual programmes over the past two years and look forward to sharing these with you online during festival week.

It’s all happening 19 – 23 October 2022 and we really hope to see you there!

An international festival of this scale, quality & ambition is not sustainable without the help & support of a wide variety of funders. A donation from you, as a Friend of the Festival, will help ensure the continued growth of this major event in the North West’s annual cultural calendar.

Artistic Director of the Festival
