Young Choir of the Year 2020

The 2020 competition is now open for entries and aims to find the best amateur Young Choirs in the UK. It’s your chance to shine!

We warmly welcome applications from youth, community, church, school and gospel choirs, in fact any choir as long as you’re of the right age – see terms and conditions.

All choirs who submit an entry will receive feedback from the shortlisting judges, whether they go through to the televised part of the competition or not.

The finals will be filmed during Spring (possibly March) at a venue to be confirmed.

The Junior and Senior finalists will sing in front of the audience (including family and friends) and the television cameras!

Have a look at last year’s Junior Semi-Finalists performing and you'll see and hear what all the excitement is about.
