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!

Skype audition slots will be available to those who find it difficult to access an audition venue including those who live in UK islands, The Highlands of Scotland, Northern Ireland and remote parts of Cornwall.  Full details to be announced.

Here's how it all works.

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) you'll be able to book your audition via our website, and choose from a range of locations, dates and time slots. The expected audition fee for 2019 is £37 (to be confirmed prior to booking). Children on free school meals can audition for free 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! We want to assess your current ability, but we are also looking to see your potential, your readiness to learn and your enthusiasm. 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.
