For 35 years, the Street Choirs Festival has been an annual celebration of the joy, the power and the fellowship of singing, hosted by Street Choirs from towns and cities across the UK.

In 2019, the Festival is being held in Manchester and hosted by the Manchester Community Choir in its 20th anniversary year. It will be based at the Royal Northern College of Music (RNCM) and across the city centre from Friday 12th July to Sunday 14th July 2019.

The theme for this year’s Festival is Inspired by Singing. Fifty choirs and a thousand singers will come together because of the inspiration they get from singing with others.

Use the What’s On tab to find out where and when you can hear free public performances by the choirs on the streets of Manchester.

Registration for choirs has now closed. If you are one of the choirs that has successfully registered, then your singers can also register and they’ll have access to the Singers area which provides all the resources that they’ll need to make the most of the weekend.

Other ways to get involved are to be one of our steward Volunteers for the weekend, or to be one of the Supporters of the event through advertising or sponsorship.

Contact us by email with any questions to which you can’t find answers on this site, but please check the FAQ section first to see if the answer is already there.
