Bristol Schools Choir Competition - Winter 2014


Win tickets for your choir and the chance to perform at the opening night of Bristol Old Vic’s Christmas musical Swallows and Amazons!


Today Bristol Old Vic launched its biggest Christmas competition yet, open to all school choirs in the Bristol area.

Taking inspiration from Swallows and Amazons’ love of the sea and sailing, we’re asking all school choirs; primary and secondary, big and small, to send in a recording of any song that takes its inspiration from a life on the open waves!

Anything from nursery rhymes, folk and pop songs to choral works – whatever you decide.

The final winner will be chosen by The Divine Comedy lead singer and Swallows and Amazons composer, Neil Hannon.


Closing date: Monday 10 November.

Send recordings (either video or audio) via email to or post to:

Swallows and Amazons Choir Competition,
Bristol Old Vic, King Street, Bristol BS1 4ED


T&C's: Up to a maximum of 60 tickets, subject to availability , best available seats. Opening night performance date: Tue 2 Dec. The winning school will need to provide own transport to Bristol Old Vic.
