The UK Choir Festival is thrilled to announce that Lord Mayor Eddy Newman will be opening the event on 8 July 2017. The festival is coming to Manchester for the 1st time, following the huge success of last year's event, in St Albans.  This years event will be held at Manchester High School for Girls, on Grangethorpe Road, Manchester (M14 6HS) over 8 July to 9 July 2017. Places for entries are slightly limited and tickets must be purchased for the entire choir, with a minimum of 4. Prices start at ₤29 for the Silver package and ₤39 for the Platinum package, per day.

The festival was founded in 2016 and aims to:- "support, train, and bring choirs together, allowing them to learn, develop and thrive in a truly unique way." The festival is produced by highly experienced and passionate musical director, Russell Scott, who started his musical career over 35 years ago. The UK Choir Festival is designed for choirs of all abilities, age and style, ranging from local community choirs to school or university choirs, barbershop and a cappella choirs. Founder, Russell Scott says:- "We are so pleased to have Eddy Newman formally opening the event in Manchester. As our 1st time coming to the city, it is so positive to see the local community getting behind the festival and offering their support to this fun, engaging and truly unique event."

The UK Choir Festival involves both practical and method teaching, mass choral singing, demonstrations and final performances. The festival is completely unique in the way that it is non-competitive, yet offers the chance to learn new techniques, develop performance and hear top tips to allow the choirs to be the very best they can.
