Hand in Hand biennial LGBT choir festival

Hand in Hand biennial LGBT choir festival

Hand in Hand is the biennial LGBT choir festival attracting all kinds of LGBT choirs from all over the UK and Ireland to get together for a weekend of workshops, performances and socialising. This year, for the first time the festival is in the North, and it is being hosted by Manchester Lesbian and Gay Chorus. The festival runs from 18-20 August and MLGC is very pleased to be welcoming 27 choirs from all over the country. 

The weekend will begin on the Friday night with a welcome party for delegates in the Gay Village and then Saturday 19th August will see a day filled with workshops and concert performances at the Royal Northern College of Music. The concerts will be open to the public to come and watch (see link to tickets below). 

The final day on the 20th will be “Radical Sunday”, when the festival culminates in the People’s History Museum with a singing workshop, performances and a discussion on the importance of music and LGBT+ community. This is also to coincide with the Never Going Underground Exhibition in the museum (of which MLGC is a partner) and the recently-opened Queer Noise music exhibition.

Tickets are available for all of the seven concerts which run through the day and evening on the 19th August and can be purchased from the RNCM box office via this link below..
