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

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

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.
