Colours of the World - singing competition to celebrate Northampton’s diversity

Published: Thursday, 10 May 2018

A ‘pitch perfect’ styled singing competition is to be held at The Deco Theatre this summer to celebrate the town’s talent and diversity.

Organised by Northampton Borough Council and The Deco Theatre, the Colours of the World competition aims to bring communities together in song on Wednesday, 20 June.

The competition, which is open to all school, community and charity singing groups, quartets, trios and duos, will see singers from all backgrounds battle it out in front of a live audience from 6.30pm.

With entries for the competition now open, choirs and singing groups are being encouraged to put themselves forward for the chance to perform.

The winning act will not only be presented with the Colours of the World perennial shield but they will also win tickets to see The Deco’s 2018 pantomime, Cinderella, on Thursday, 13 December and meet the cast after the show.

Cllr Anna King, Cabinet member for community engagement and safety, said: “We are really excited to be working in partnership with The Deco Theatre to introduce this brand new event in Northampton.

“We know that Northampton has a lot of talented singing groups, from all different backgrounds, and we look forward to bringing everyone together, to celebrate the town’s diversity with this annual event.”
