The an­nual con­test sees singing groups from across the county come to Ash­ford to com­pete.

The choirs of Ash­ford’s High­worth Gram­mar School for Girls and Great Chart Pri­mary School are among past win­ners and oth­ers like the Ash­ford Com­mu­nity Choir have also taken part.

The judg­ing panel will in­clude ex­pe­ri­enced mu­si­cians, with choirs judged on pre­sen­ta­tion, qual­ity, and choice of ma­te­rial.

The dead­line for ap­pli­ca­tions is Fri­day, June 6. All en­tries must in­clude the name of the choir or school, an ad­dress and con­tact name, a tele­phone and mo­bile num­ber, an email ad­dress, the size and age-range of choir and a list of the three songs that will be per­formed.
