This annual festival is one of Ireland’s top choral festival, and sees choirs from all over Ireland and abroad converge on Sligo to compete in competitions in a dizzying array of musical styles.

There are all sorts of choirs – male, female, mixed, youth, large and small, young and, um, less young! – singing everything from sacred music to barbershop. Competitions are hotly contested and there is invariably some wonderful singing to be enjoyed.

As well as competitions there are workshops and master classes for both adult and youth chiors.

There is a grand concert on the opening night, a festival club runs each night and on one day of the festival choirs take to the streets, pubs and shopping centres of Sligo to entertain the crowds. On Sunday there are choirs singing at services in every church in the town.

Date and details for 2021 subject to confirmation.
