Seven junior and eight community choirs will take to the Hexagon stage on Friday 24 March to battle it out for the Let’s Sing trophy. The evening, hosted by ITV Meridian’s Mel Bloor, will feature performances from all 15 choirs, as well as an exciting musical interval performance by Damien A. Passmore.

A winner will be crowned from each category, and the overall winner of the night will be presented with a special Let’s Sing trophy by the Mayor.

In the school choir line-up: Abbey Junior School's Chamber Choir, The Bulmershe Ensemble, St Michael's School Choir, The ABCs (The Abbey Barbershop Collection), Calcot School Choir, English Martyrs School Choir, and Highdown School Choir.
