This FAQ updated: 17 September 2018

We hold auditions for our choirs each Autumn at locations around the UK*.

Auditions for the National Youth Boys' Choir, National Youth Girls' Choir and National Youth Training Choir are held in October/November. Booking opens in mid to late September.

Auditions for the National Youth Choir are held in September. Booking opens in July/August. The auditions are earlier because the choir has a special Annual Programme which runs from November to August.

All audition dates and locations are usually announced in late Spring/early Summer, and published to the Audition dates & locations page on our website:


Please note (1): You are free to choose the audition location which suits you best. If your audition is successful, you'll be invited to join the choir appropriate for your age/ability.

Please note (2): We only publish audition locations, and not venues, for safeguarding purposes. Audition venues are usually located centrally and easily accessible by public transport. You'll receive venue details with your confirmation email when you book your audition. 

*We often offer audition days to current members on their Summer courses.
