About Barnardo’s National Choral Competition

Barnardo’s National Choral Competition Grand Final 2024

Barnardo’s is delighted to once again host the National Choral Competition, the largest of its kind in the UK. Over 60 schools competed to win a place at this prestigious final, which is returning once again to Birmingham Symphony Hall. 15 Junior Schools and 7 Senior schools are competing to be crowned National Junior and Senior Champions on the night. As well as seeing all 22 choirs individually perform, Douglas Coombes MBE will conduct two mass pieces where all the choirs will perform together. The night will also raise vital funds so that Barnardo’s can continue to support the most vulnerable children and families in our communities. We do hope you will join us at this special event
