Barnsley Youth Choir is planning to return to the world famous Edinburgh Fringe Festival in August 2018, but the choir needs your help to get there!
The choir first performed at the renowned arts festival in August 2016, winning rave reviews for its performances in the city’s legendary Greyfriars Kirk. Barnsley Youth Choir is now seeking to take 140 of our members aged between10-24 years of age to represent Barnsley and Yorkshire in the prestigious Edinburgh Fringe Festival in August 2018 and we need support from local people, businesses and organisations to make this possible.
All of our children are working so hard to raise money but desperately need your help! They have already done cake sales, bag packing and also taken part in a 14 hour, through the night, non-stop sponsored Singathon where they raised £17,000! ey aren’t asking for hand-outs – they just need some help along the way.
Barnsley Youth Choir is a registered charity and voluntary organisation that supports an amazing team of children. We provide outstanding opportunities for over 350 young people to access world class training, give exceptional performances in this country and abroad, empower young people and strengthen connections throughout the local community; irrespective of a child’s background or financial status. Barnsley Youth Choir has become a flagship ensemble that represents the town on a local, national and international stage. It is now ranked 4th in the World Rankings and is the highest ranked GB choir in the world.
With over 3,000 shows visiting from across the world, the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, which runs from 3 to 27 August 201, attracts the very best performers in the world. Despite the vast number of shows on offer, Barnsley Youth Choir is confident that its shows will stand out following their meteoric rise to success over the past few years.
