We are delighted to bring it back for a fourth year and we aim to increase the number of contestants. The UK has one of the most respected Choral traditions in the world and I am so proud to be part of that tradition with the creation, organisation and sponsorship of the Last Choir Singing competition.

“We wanted to give something back to a community that has supported our firm since 2003. As organiser and main sponsor, True Bearing is keen to raise awareness of singing in junior schools and to demonstrate that music education is alive and well in Lancashire!
