Durham Big Sing Festival Programme 2020, The Singing Elf

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Durham Big Sing 2020 had to be postponed. However, we thought you might still be interested to know what would have happened at the festival as it might give a flavour of what to expect at Durham Big Sing 2021. Read below to see what Durham Big Sing 2020 would have offered. If you are interested in keeping up to date about our plans for 2021, you can sign up to our mailing list here.

Who can take part?
Durham Big Sing welcomes adult singers of all abilities and musical tastes. You don't need any previous experience as the mix of voices is one of the magical aspects of the festival; with complete beginners singing alongside more confident voices. Some of the events will also be open to accompanied young people but the focus of the festival is on adults.

Are the events accessible?
Durham Big Sing strives to include everyone and aims to break down barriers to taking part. Our inclusive, non-competitive events offer additional support to those with a wide range of accessibility needs, including those with limited mobility or those requiring seating at both indoor & outdoor locations.
