The Festival fun doesn’t stop when the Gala’s ended – it simply moves to the Festival Club at the Clayton! It’s the perfect place to kick back and relax with festival choirs and guests. There is something for everyone, depending on whether you are in the mood to sing, dance, drink or mingle your way into the small hours.
With the ambition of ensuring everybody gets the opportunity to sing in the Festival, we invite you all to come and take part in The Big Sing 2019, the festival’s big and bright participatory singing event. The Big Sing is open to everyone and admission is free. There is no preparation necessary – people gather to sing from, and for, the heart. The Big Sing will take place in Cork City Hall on Saturday 4th May, at 12pm!
Afternoons in the Atrium provide a weekend of energetic and entertaining performances by national and international choirs in the fresh, modern setting of the Clayton Hotel, Lapps Quay. It is the perfect setting for families and festival goers who want to relax in the hotel’s bright atrium and experience the festival atmosphere in full flow.
Are you looking for a gift to bring home for friends and family or a Festival souvenir just for you? The Festival’s merchandise shop will be located in the foyer of Cork City Hall throughout the Festival. From bags and CDs to torches and umbrellas, our friendly staff will be delighted to help you choose your souvenir of a wonderful Festival week!
