The Festival fun didn’t stop when the Gala’s ended – it simply moved to the Festival Club at the Clayton! It was the perfect place to kick back and relax with festival choirs and guests. There was something for everyone, depending on whether you were in the mood to sing, dance, drink or mingle your way into the small hours.
With the ambition of ensuring everybody got the opportunity to sing in the Festival, we invited you all to come and take part in The Big Sing 2018, the festival’s big and bright participatory singing event. The Big Sing was open to everyone and admission was free. There was no preparation necessary – people gathered to sing from, and for, the heart!
Afternoons in the Atrium provided a weekend of energetic and entertaining performances by national and international choirs in the fresh, modern setting of the Clayton Hotel, Lapps Quay. It was the perfect setting for families and festival goers who wanted to relax in the hotel’s bright atrium and experience the festival atmosphere in full flow.
