It is with much regret that due to the Corona Virus outbreak, the Festival Committee has had to take the decision to cancel the 2020 Festival due to take place from 1-4 April at St Comgall’s Parish Centre, Bangor.
This was a difficult decision to make as so many choirs were travelling from across the Province, Republic of Ireland and United Kingdom to take part, but in light of the current and ongoing situation, it was necessary in order to protect both choirs, volunteers and audience members.
The Festival committee would like to thank all those, both audience and choral groups, who support the Festival every year – this is very much appreciated.
Set in the beautiful seaside town of Bangor, just 15 miles from Belfast, with easy access by sea and low cost air travel, this highly successful Festival offers classes in Youth, Mixed, Ladies and Male Voice Choirs, Ladies and Mens' Barbershop, plus Madrigal, Sacred and Light Entertainment Sections, all of which offer substantial monetary prizes, with the Open Choral Competition offering a top prize of £1000!
The Festival also offers a wonderful warm Irish welcome with participants arriving as guests and leaving as friends.
So, choose Bangor, Northern Ireland as your Festival for 2020 - we know you won't forget it!!
