We are currently waiting for some final pieces of information before we can open on-line Singer Registration, which we hope to do during the week 11-17 February. We’ll email all the Choir reps and put an announcement on our Facebook page when this happens.
Choirs need to have completed their choir registration before their singers can register.
Everyone coming to the Festival – singers, Choir Reps, Musical Directors – all need to register as singers. Anyone who is with more than one choir only needs to register once.
The registration fee is £40 plus a payment admin fee of £1.95.
There is no concessionary rate, but there are a number of free delegate registration places for people on means-tested benefits for which people can apply in confidence.
As well as the opportunity to perform on stage at the RNCM with your choir at the Saturday night concert, your registration includes your pass on arrival, a Festival Programme, final rehearsal and participation in the Massed Sing, up to 3 busking slots for your choir on Saturday afternoon, and your choice of two workshops on Sunday morning. You’ll also have access to the Singers area of the website, which will have all the information you’ll need to make the most of the weekend, including words, music and teach tracks for the Massed Sing songs.
We’ve aimed to make the registration process straightforward.
You’ll give your email address and choose a password and these will become your login details.
You’ll enter some details about yourself, and then you’ll be asked if you want to order any of the optional extras – a Friday night concert ticket (£5), a Festival T-shirt (£10) and a Sunday picnic (£7). We’ll also ask you if you’re coming to the Sunday workshops; this is to help us to gauge numbers – you’ll register for your chosen workshops in April.
Finally, you’ll be taken to a payment screen and once you’ve made your payment you are a registered user on the site and you can login, which will give you access to the Singers area of the website.
If you have any questions or difficulties, you can email us at email@example.com and we’ll sort you out, though please check the FAQ page first – the answer may be there!
