We want our auditions process to be easy and accessible so that you can concentrate on the most important thing - preparing to give your best!

Read on for a simple overview of the auditions process. Please note that we only hold auditions at certain times of year, and auditions booking is not open all year round. To check if auditions booking is currently open, click here. Alternatively, sign up to our mailing list and we'll make sure you're first to receive relevant news and updates.

The auditions process

1. Sign up
If you haven't already done so, sign up to our mailing list. That way you'll be guaranteed to receive updates and information as soon as they're published.
2. Book

When booking opens, you'll receive an email from us (make sure to sign up!). You'll be able to book your audition via our website, and choose from a range of locations, dates and time slots. It costs £35 to book an audition and financial assistance is available.

3. Prepare
Once you've booked your audition, it's time to make sure you're as prepared as you can be. We have lots of information and resources on this website to help you.
4. Audition
The big day! Our panelists want to assess your current ability, but they are also looking to see your potential, your readiness to learn and your enthusiasm. All candidates will receive helpful tips and advice on how to improve your singing. Do your best, be your best. 
5. Get your result
We email results once all auditions have taken place. If successful, you'll be asked to accept your place in the choir to which you've been allocated, based on your age and ability.
