The Singers’ resource area will be available once singer registration opens in early 2019.

It will contain information about the acts for the Friday night concert and the workshops on Sunday and how to register for these, information on accommodation and eateries close to the RNCM, and general useful ‘stuff’ about Manchester.

From here, you’ll be able to download the words, music and teach tracks for the songs for the Massed Sing.

Here, you’ll also be able to order your ticket for the Friday concert, your Festival T-shirt and a picnic lunch for Sunday. You may also be able to buy extra concert tickets for friends and family, though we won’t know until Registration closes how many of these we’ll have available.

Nearer the time, we’ll also publish here detailed timings for the weekend and the schedules for the busking spots and for the Saturday night concert.

Much of this information will also be in the Festival Programme, but having it in advance will help you to plan and make the most of your weekend.
