About the Festival

Launched in 2016, The UK Choir Festival is a festival aimed to support, train and bring choirs together in a beautiful setting where people can learn, develop and thrive.

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

Whether you are a choir of 4 people or 300 people, your choir will love being part of this exciting and dynamic festival, where learning and making great music is at its heart.

Hailed by American Express Essentials as one of the most ‘Awe-Inspiring Choral Festivals of the World’, The UK Choir festival is produced to give choirs the opportunity to be taught by some of the best workshop leaders in the UK.

No matter which event you choose to attend, choirs take part in a series of amazing workshops given by some of the best workshop leaders in the UK, in a supportive, informative, collaborative, non-competitive and inspiring conference-style setting. It will involve practical and method teaching, and everyone will be involved. 

At the end of each day, choirs get the opportunity to rehearse and then perform (if they choose to) in front of each other and the panel of workshop leaders who will give each choir written constructive feedback.

The festival is non-competitive, but very much ‘hands-on’ for everyone to watch and learn from each other whilst 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.The UK Choir Festival is unique, and takes place in beautiful locations across the UK.

Don’t miss this fantastic opportunity of learning from the very best and being part of some incredible music-making.
