Virtual Festival 2020

← Back to festivals page

We are very excited to announce the Hand in Hand Virtual Festival 2020: the first of its kind for Proud Voices UK & Ireland!

With Hand in Hand Newcastle postponed to 2022, and in the face of restrictions on rehearsing and performing as choirs due to the COVID pandemic, there has never been a greater need for all our choirs to pull together and celebrate all we have achieved, and all that we have to look forward to when we eventually meet face-to-face again.

Join us!

When: Opening ceremony - 7PM Saturday 19 September 2020
Where: On the Proud Voices YouTube channel and other on-line platforms

The Hand in Hand Virtual Festival 2020 takes some of its cues from its in-person counterpart: there will be an opening and closing ceremony, a series of concerts, workshops and even a joint song. It is an opportunity for all our choirs to get together for a fun weekend of activities and entertainment. The virtual format also allows choirs which have never taken part in one of the previous Hand in Hand festivals to join us for the first time, and to experience the excitement of sharing their music-making with hundred of like-minded people.

Information about the virtual festival has gone out to each of the Proud Voices choir reps. More information will be posted to this page soon, and to stay up to date please follow us on Facebook or twitter for the latest information.

In order to make this happen we would really appreciate your support. If you can, please do consider donating. We're aiming to raise £1200 to pay for a host and workshop leaders for the festival, and any surplus donations will go to making Hand in Hand Newcastle 2022 a reality. All donations, however big or small, would be gratefully received and your contributions will help make Hand In Hand 2020 a festival to remember!

See you at the Hand in Hand Virtual Festival 2020!
